We are still open throughout the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. 

Family law is still a vital aspect of many of our lives, and the courts will still handle urgent business. The Courts have stated that that urgent business includes: 

  • New applications for child protection orders
  • Interim interdicts
  • child referral appeals
  • urgent adoptions
  • urgent interim residence or contact applications 
  • and urgent applications in relation to Adults with Incapacity.

This means many cases can still proceed through court including urgent disputes regarding the living arrangements of children, social work cases and more. 

Many cases can be progressed as normal outside of court.  In particular, separation and divorce matters can often be finalised without any court intervention whatsoever.

Since our founding we have operated a paperless way of working.  We are able to progress the cases of new and existing clients remotely during these unprecedented times.  We can receive documents via email, WhatsApp and more.  We can offer appointments by telephone, FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom. 

Please contact our office on 0141 404 6575  to arrange an appointment to discuss the best approach for your case.
