Family Law

Solomon Levy is recognised as an established provider of family law services.

We provide a comprehensive and expert service in all areas of family law and our specialism is recognised by the Law Society by way of accreditation as Advanced Members of the Family Law and Children Panels.

We are members of Resolution. We recognise that family disputes are stressful and subscribe to the Resolution code of practice in promoting an approach to family law that is sensitive, constructive, cost effective and most likely to result in an agreement.

We continue to offer a legal aid service where clients are eligible and are pleased to offer a without obligation assessment of costs at the outset of any instructions.

Wherever possible we offer a fixed fee arrangement. 

Solomon Levy offers a one off fixed fee consultation at £60 plus VAT and a fixed fee service to Petitioners in respect of uncontested divorces (where there are no financial or children’s issues to be determined) at £300 plus VAT and Court fees where applicable.

Any work that is required outside a fixed fee arrangement will be discussed and agreed prior to instruction.

Domestic Violence

We are Law Society accredited experts in domestic abuse cases and subject to financial eligibility offer a full legal aid service to clients.

We offer advice in relation to all aspects of domestic abuse. Such abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, financial or sexual and the abuse can be actual or threatened.

We are always able to see clients on an emergency basis and apply to the Court without notice for Non Molestation and Occupation Orders.

A Non Molestation Order forbids the threat or use of violence, intimidation or harassment and if breached is a criminal offence.

An Occupation Order regulates the occupation of the home and can provide for the perpetrator to be excluded from and within a prescribed area of the home.

To those clients who are not eligible for legal aid we are able to provide a fixed fee service and assist and advise in respect of the drawing up of Consent Orders where agreement has been reached in mediation.
