Bastows Divorce Solicitors are a specialist Family Law Firm based in Hampshire, operating from Southampton and Portsmouth. We also cover London and Surrey.
Family Law Solicitors
We act for clients locally and from all over the world who are getting divorced in England and Wales.
When your relationship breaks down we can help you with all aspects relating to your children, your finances and the divorce or separation. We will advise you on the best course of action and help you decide the next step.
You need help in deciding how to proceed and you may be able to complete your own divorce – but you need to understand the legal position first.
It is important to take legal advice before you separate and divorce.
Bastows Divorce Solicitors Ltd are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority registered number 559201.
Sound Legal Advice
We offer high quality and cost effective advice. We only act for privately paying individuals. We seek as far as possible to offer a fixed fee service, recognising that the divorce cost is a major anxiety for many people.
For those on a low income www.adviceguide.org.uk is an excellent source of information. To work out if you qualify for public funding the Legal Services Commission has an online calculator at www.clsdirect.org.uk. Legal aid has been reduced and is only available in specific circumstances – care proceedings, forced marriage, if there has been a conviction for domestic abuse.
Contact us if you need help at the start of your relationship – with a Cohabitation Agreement or a pre-Nuptial Agreement. Pre-Nuptial Agreements are now more legally binding and it is important to seriously consider having such an agreement if you have more assets than your partner. You can also take out a post nuptial agreement.
