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.

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.
