Barnes Family Law are solicitors and divorce lawyers based in Liversedge, West Yorkshire, with an additional office in York. We have clients mainly in Huddersfield, Leeds, York, Harrogate, Wakefield, Halifax, Bradford and surrounding areas and are only a few minutes from the M62. We also have clients from further afield both nationally and internationally.
Family Law Specialists
We specialise only in dealing with family law issues arising from the breakdown of your marriage, civil partnership or cohabitation including divorce, financial matters, pensions, arrangements for the children. We think it is important that we do not deal with other areas of law as this allows us to concentrate on offering you up to date expertise and a service you and your partner can both trust and rely on.
Supportive Yet Professional
We understand that the breakdown of any relationship can be very traumatic and it is hard having to deal with the emotional aspects without also having to worry about practical legal arrangements.We pride ourselves on caring about what happens to you. We provide all our clients with a supportive yet very professional legal service. We provide clear advice and set out all your options from the start allowing you to make an informed decision as to what steps to take in order to move forward.
Tailored Services for Your Needs
We also understand people have different priorities when they divorce or separate. Sometimes this can be arrangements for the children, in other cases financial arrangements are more pressing. We appreciate the need to be flexible which allows us to concentrate on achieving what is best for you and your own unique family circumstances.
Resolution not Revolution
We will deal with your case promptly and sensitively and we will always bear in mind that costs are a very important factor for you. Wherever possible we will always try and resolve your matter without the need to go to Court as it is important to avoid confrontation if we can. Be assured though, if Court action is necessary we will take all the appropriate steps to ensure your interests are fully protected.
We are also a member of a national organisation called “Resolution”, which commits family lawyers to deal with divorces and disputes in a constructive way, and which is designed to preserve people’s dignity and to encourage agreements.
We hope that you are happy with the service that we provide. However, occasionally things do go wrong and we aim to resolve issues as quickly as possible. We have a complaints policy which sets out our complaints procedures, and this is available on request. Further information on complaints handling can be found in our terms of business. If we are unable to resolve your issue through our complaints procedure, then you may contact the Legal Ombudsman to consider your complaint.
