Getting started on separation

Where do you start, what about the children, what’s fair, will I need to go to court?

The prospect of separation is a frightening mix of questions for anyone unfamiliar with the process. This is why we recommend our First Step Package (FSP) – a fixed fee service. The FSP is an initial appointment for up to two hours that includes full written advice, detailed information and everything you need to help get you started.
