Family Law
Family Law

The family team at Garner Canning recognise that family law issues can be complicated, highly personal and often emotionally charged. Disputes that arise are usually difficult for all parties and often impact on the children of the family.  We acknowledge this and aim to help you resolve the issues in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner.


We appreciate that a “one size fits all” approach is not appropriate in family matters and will ensure that our advice is tailored to your circumstances and with all the facts taken into account.


If you are experiencing relationship difficulties or have separated from your spouse or partner, or you are unable to agree the arrangements for you or a former partner to spend time with your children, you should seek legal advice as quickly as possible. Arrange a meeting with our friendly, approachable team for clear, practical legal advice. 

First Appointment — £100.00 plus VAT

We offer an initial consultation at a fixed fee of £100 plus VAT.  The meeting will last up to one hour when we can discuss your circumstances and explore the options available to you. 

How can we help you ?

We offer a wide range of services.  Our specialist areas include:

  • Divorce and separation

  • Financial issues arising from your relationship breakdown

  • Property disputes between cohabiting couples

  • Children matters

  • Nuptial Agreements

  • Change of Names

How much will it cost ?

Our rates vary and will depend on the nature and complexity of your case.  However, we can discuss your costs at the initial consultation.  We understand that clients prefer to know in advance how much their fees will be. Uncertainty can be a real cause of concern. We always provide clients with an estimate of our fees from the outset depending on their own particular circumstances. In some cases, we are able to confirm a fixed fee for a service which can often be paid by regular monthly instalments.
