You are in Services For You

Family Law

We provide legal services for families in Basingstoke and across Hampshire

It's a fact of life that not all marriages or relationships are successful. Sadly, one out of every two marriages today ends in divorce.

When a relationship or marriage breaks down, one or both parties may want to dissolve the marriage or to obtain a formal decree of judicial separation. You will need professional advice to help you through these processes.

Our family solicitors at Phillips in Basingstoke specialise in all aspects of the breakdown of the family unit, especially when it involves complex financial and property matters and - most importantly - any children.

Our family law solicitors and support team work with you to avoid lengthy, costly and emotionally-draining court cases wherever possible, often by using our mediation and collaborative law services.

What you can expect from our family solicitors team:

  • Expertise in the field you need - all the solicitors in our family law team are highly qualified and we are accredited members of Family Lawyers, The Family Mediators Association and Relate Quality Partners. You can be sure we'll look after your needs with great discretion
  • Clear straight-forward legal advice when you need it most - we aim to keep jargon to a minimum and guide you through the process in a manner which is easy to understand
  • A good progression of your case - we'll keep you involved, informed with regular updates, whilst endeavouring to keep the stress levels to a minimum
  • No surprises - we'll give you an estimate of costs upfront, subject to the proviso that emergencies cannot be predicted and, of course, so much depends on the co-operation of the other person(s). We'll keep you informed of changes so that you can keep a proper eye on your budget
  • We will agree a fixed price in most circumstances if that suits you better

We will need to gather quite a lot of details about your case and it will be helpful if you bring as much relevant information as possible. This will enable us to make sure that the time we spend together is most productive for you.
