COVID-19 is placing an enormous stress on families and parents and we understand that tensions can rise.

Our Family Law team continue to be available for advice and legal support. We are working remotely; carrying out appointments by phone, video conferencing, and email. We are therefore confident at being able to offer a complete service to all of our clients, including those who are involved in current court proceedings or who may need to start proceedings in the near future.

The guidance we have received from the President of the Family Division indicates that the Family Courts will remain open and court hearings will be held remotely wherever possible, with certain urgent hearings still being conducted in person.

At Ellisons, we remain committed to helping you during these difficult times. So please do not hesitate to call us, should you feel in need of assistance.

COVID-19: In these extraordinary times we recognise how difficult it is to find time to do everything, let alone seek legal advice. This is especially the case where you are living with your partner or spouse and are considering separating, or have your children with you during the day.

Therefore, we are now able to offer flexible telephone appointments to meet your personal needs, whether that is in the evenings, early mornings or weekends as well as our usual office hours. If making that initial call to book an appointment is difficult please email us at in the first instance and we can arrange a meeting by email.
