How to find a family solicitor who will put your children first

Well-meaning friends tend to be full of advice when you are going through separation or divorce, particularly when it comes to choosing the right solicitor. However, your own priorities may be very different to theirs and it’s important that the person you choose is going to understand how you want to approach things.

Most people recommend Clark Family Law because of our focus on the wellbeing of the whole family and our desire to help couples put their children’s interests at the heart of their decision making. Here are some of the things that our clients mention when talking about their experience with us:

Rapport – We believe in listening first and asking questions with empathy and understanding so that we can help clients achieve the outcome they would like. It is really important for us to understand their priorities and build up rapport so that we can offer the best possible support.

Approachable – One of the things clients regularly mention when we have worked with them is how approachable they found us. When you are going through a tense and emotional time in your life, it is important to have a solicitor who you feel you can talk openly to.

Minimising impact on the family – We are incredibly proud of the fact that so many of our clients recommend us because they feel we did everything we possibly could to help them minimise the impact of their divorce on their family. Everything we say and do is designed to put the interests of the family first. Sally Clark is trained in child inclusive mediation and this can be a powerful way to give children a voice in the decision making process and find out whether there is anything they are worried about but perhaps don’t want to tell you.

Making life easier – A lot of people who live in and around Harrogate choose us because we are close by. This is something people often forget to consider when choosing a solicitor but it makes life so much easier if you choose someone who is local. Our location right in the centre of town makes it easy for people to pop in and see us for meetings or to sign paperwork.

The best way to find out whether we’re the right solicitor for you is to come and meet us. To arrange an initial meeting call Clark Family Law on 01423 637272.
