Family Information

If you are looking at getting married, adopting children, separating, divorcing, making contact arrangements or deciding who can look after children, or want to know your rights or the rights of your ex-partner, new partner or extended family are in relation to your children, then you are looking at Family Advice. This may also cover deaths, wills, birth certificates and relationships.

For many of these issues you should bring details of any marriage, divorce or related court judgments, details of who is named on birth certificates, or where a marriage took place (outside the uk etc), and what other agencies might be involved (social services etc).

Be aware that advice providers often cannot advice both sides of a dispute (divorce or childcare disputes) and if you both approach the same organisation then one of you would need to be referred or signposted elsewhere.

If you have a Relationships issue there is information and details of advice providers available below.
