You never expect to have family problems, but when they do arise and you need legal advice, you’ll want a solicitor that wants to hear your story and help you find a solution. We aren’t just legal experts, we love helping people and families.
Hopkins Solicitors invites people with family problems to an initial 30 minute FREE* consultation to determine if you need legal help, and if we are the right law firm for you. We will provide clear, fixed fee prices and can tell you from the start how much you can expect to pay, so you can budget accordingly. We also offer flexible payment schedules to suit your budget. * Please note that the 30 minute free initial consultation excludes consultations where you request a Partner level Solicitor due to the complexity of your problem.
We also offer FREE advice and court representation through the Legal Aid Scheme for eligible clients. You can check if you are eligible here on the official Legal Aid website. Note: Eligibility will be assessed during your initial appointment. You will need to bring in two forms of identification and documents to prove your eligibility.
Divorce and Separation
We can help you to understand the divorce or dissolution process and advise you of the steps involved. We can handle your divorce from start to finish, or support you if you choose to do some of the work yourself. Whatever your decision, we will match our service to your needs.

We can help you to negotiate and agree children issues with the other parent, and make those agreements legally binding. There are a number of legal agreements, or ‘Orders’, available to agree children issues, and we can advise you which are suitable for your needs.

We can help to protect you from domestic violence, abuse and harassment using Orders granted by the Family Courts. We can provide confidential advice on your situation, and help you understand the options available to protect you and your children.
