Frequently Asked Family Law Questions
Do you offer free initial family law advice?
How much does it cost To Instruct A Family Solicitor?
Solicitors have varying fees depending upon which course of action you wish to pursue and it is always wise to discuss these options first before committing and instructing a firm. At Consilia, we can provide you with practical tips and advice, that don’t have to cost you a lot, just perhaps your time in undertaking some of the work yourself. We can also offer fixed-fee services to suit your budget and the nature of your case.
How Do I Get A Divorce?
The first step is to complete a divorce petition which is a standard court document. Visit our Divorce Section to download our step-by-step guide to divorce.
How Long Does It Take To Get A Divorce And Do I Have To Go To Court?
The divorce process can be done on paper i.e without you having to go to Court unless the proceedings are defended or there is a significant issue as to costs. It is important to get specialist advice as there may be associated financial claims and matters relating to the care of your children which you need to resolve. The divorce process itself, whilst it changes your legal status, does not determine how the finances associated with the breakdown of your marriage should be determined or where your children will live.
What Is Family Mediation?
Family mediation is a process of resolving conflict with an ex-partner in relation to matters concerning your property and finances or your children or both. An independent family mediator facilitates discussions regarding these issues with you and your ex-partner and works with you to achieve a mutually agreeable outcome. Visit our Family Mediation Section for more information.
How Do I Get Access To My Children?
If you are having difficulties with your ex-partner in connection with access to your children, we can assist you through a number of methods including family mediation or formal court proceedings. Get more information on our page on child arrangement orders.

5 Star Rated Family Law Solicitors
Our clients rate us highly for family law in services in Leeds, Yorkshire and beyond.
I had used another company prior to Consilia Legal for advice in my separation but the approach was really aggressive and I didn’t feel like they truly had time for me which is why I gave Consilia Legal a call. Straight away they were fair and far more pragmatic, seeking to always be cost effective when it came to resolving the issues I faced. The solicitor I dealt with always had time, and my best interests at heart, and was always available to help me with any questions I had.
Sensitive & Efficient
Many thanks to Laura and Kieran for the sensitive, and efficient way they dealt with my legal matter. Helping to make what was a very emotional time bearable, I can highly recommend the team at Consilia Legal.
Laura was exceptional. Having consulted with other firms on the matter, Laura was the only one that truly understood the different elements of the case and knew exactly how to handle it. She was able to daft in the correct barrister for the job and took a great weight off my shoulders. I really cant thank Laura and the team enough.
Laura and the team have been an incredible help in my divorce. Through a very difficult time they have always been on hand to offer exceptional advice and assistance. I have always felt reassured by their professionalism and care. Thank You
