Get the UK family law assistance you need


As is the case in other parts of the world, in the UK, family law is concerned with issues related to family disputes. Although this is a specific area of the law, it can involve numerous entities, agencies and authorities, based on the scope and nature of the proceedings. Family law in the UK can include both public and private matters, with some cases limited to a family unit while others involve government entities.


Typically, family courts in England and Wales deal with:


  • Parental custody disputes
  • Divorce proceedings
  • Intervention for child protection
  • Domestic violence (depending on situation)
  • Special guardianship
  • The adoption process

If you have UK family law questions, or you need guidance with family court proceedings, the legal Experts on JustAnswer can clarify any confusion you have regarding these important, and sensitive, matters. All you need is an Internet connection, and the verified professionals can provide you with information and peace of mind. You’ll only approve payment to the Expert once you’re fully satisfied with the assistance you’ve received.

Many years ago my aunts husband left the matrimonial home
many years ago my aunts husband left the matrimonial home one night and never came back all without warning in the early days we searched for him but without success. last year after employing new people we traced him to bournemouth where he had been living unsheltered housing. because of his health a solicitor was appointed to help him manage his money. they said he had no possesions said he had no family at all and there was no photographs in the flat. also no documents of any kind. the solicitors advised him to make a will after he was eventually moved into a care home with dementia rather than the small amount of money he had go to the government. he obviously agreed to this and the little money was left to cancer research. we have now discovered that he died a year ago. his wife is still alive in the same home but it is her husbands name on the deeds only. she has gone through agony with this journey she is 82. and having discovered the information is terrified that the charity will take her home. at the moment theynhavd no knowledge of the property. I have read that she could make a claim. but is it too late. is the solicitor wrong in not checking into his ni number with the dwp before advising where to leave his money. it was very easy checking this as his ni number marries with his wife together on record. I am in such a worry what to do next … read more

Get answers to UK family law questions online


Some of the UK family law inquiries and problems already handled by the verified Experts on JustAnswer include:


  • If I were to leave my husband, would he be entitled to some of my money? I earn more pension than he does, and he is consistently in debt.
  • I live in England. Can my husband divorce me from Jersey, using Jersey courts, or does he have to use the English courts and a solicitor in the UK?
  • My boyfriend’s estranged wife will not file for decree nisi, as she wants to hash out financials. She has turned down mediation. What can be done?

Before seeking out guidance from the Experts on JustAnswer, be sure to have the following items prepared:


  • Any relevant court appearances
  • Your location, since laws can vary on a local basis
  • Any legal assistance you’ve already received on the matter

These details will allow the Expert assisting you to provide feedback quickly and accurately.
