We are local family law solicitors here to help you

When you have children, the breakdown of a relationship can often place them at the centre of a complicated dispute. And when legal matters affect your child’s wellbeing, you want to ensure that you have the right family law experts to help.

Whether you are going through a divorce and separation, the dissolution of a civil partnership, or breaking up as a cohabiting couple, a number of issues can arise if you have children together. These include:

  • Where a child will live
  • How much time a child will spend with the other parent
  • Which school a child will attend
  • What rights the grandparents will have
  • Whether either parent is allowed to relocate a child, either in the UK or abroad

If your child’s other parent is trying to move them to a different home, different school, or even different country, you may have to take urgent action to prevent it from happening. In these situations, Truth Legal can help you to make an urgent application to the court, seeking an order to prevent or reverse any such changes.

At Truth Legal, we offer a top-quality and friendly legal service with an expert family law solicitor responsible for your case.

Contact us today for clear advice and support on legal matters involving your children. We can offer you a free, confidential 30-minute consultation, to help you consider the best way forward in your circumstances.

Will I have to go to court?

Both sides of a child legal dispute are encouraged to resolve the matters regarding the children amicably or with an assistance of a mediator. At Truth Legal we understand that this is not always possible. We can assist in issuing the Court proceedings, where necessary, and represent you throughout the case.

If any application to the court is made in relation to a child, the Children and Family Court Advisor and Support Service (CAFCASS) will get involved. They independently advise the family courts about what is safe for children and in their best interests. They put the children’s needs, wishes and feelings first, making sure that the children’s voices are heard at the heart of the family court setting.

Court proceedings can be long, complex and overwhelming, and we understand that you will want certainty and reassurance whenever your children’s welfare is at stake.


Truth Legal is committed to fair, affordable pricing for all of our services. We will discuss funding arrangements in detail with you before working on your case, so you can be clear on costs and expenses upfront.

Ethically driven

Truth Legal was founded on the idea of putting ethics at the centre of legal services. 

Ethical working is at our core: in treating people fairly, being open and honest, and taking social responsibility. We sponsor a large section of woodland near Harrogate, planting a tree for every one of the clients we represent.

Real lawyers, real people

We believe a good lawyer shouldn’t just offer technical expertise, but a real understanding of what you’re going through and how best to help you. 

Above all, our team are dedicated to their clients – whether that is guiding them through legal complexities, securing compensation, or simply fighting for what’s right.

We won’t blind you with jargon – we give advice clearly. And when technical terms can’t be avoided we explain them in full.
