Children

CORONAVIRUS

We remain fully open to help with family law issues during the current global outbreak of the Coronavirus, COVID-19. All of our family law solicitors are working as normal using remote access technology and we can arrange appointments by telephone and video call, as an alternative to face to face meetings. We can also arrange appointments outside of normal working hours, as we understand the lockdown can make it even harder than usual to consult solicitors on sensitive family law matters

In line with current government advice, our offices in Petersfield and Midhurst remain open and operational although we are operating with a reduced staff level on the ground and only able to admit to our offices clients who have pre-booked an appointment. All of our lawyers have access to secure cloud based technologies for emails and telephone calls and video conferencing, which enable them to work remotely and conduct meetings accordingly.

You can continue to contact us, as normal, by phone, email and video conferencing and where essential pre-book a face to face meeting in the office. We remain fully committed to delivering a high level of client service, tailored to your individual needs.

Relationship breakups where children are involved can be especially difficult and upsetting and require sensitive handling. In most cases, couples manage to work things out between them, and this is always our preferred option.  We will provide all the support you need, but if you   cannot reach a satisfactory agreement,  we will help you find the best legal remedy.

We advise on all issues including

  • Contact with children
  • Residence
  • Maintenance and other financial support
  • Disputes concerning schooling
  • Name changes
  • Adoption
  • Applications to move a child abroad

To talk to someone in confidence, please contact us.

Very professional and highly qualified – Tim really knows his stuff

I remain totally indebted to Tim Melville-Walker and Alison Odle and the team for getting me through a difficult divorce…I would recommend them 100%.

Nisha was wonderful. Thank you!

Having Tim ‘on side’ during this traumatic episode made a real difference. He was a tremendous support but at the same time kept me focussed on the main objective, i.e. obtaining a sensible outcome. This, thankfully, we did achieve.

Tim Melville-Walker has been excellent and a credit to your firm

Fantastic service I would not hesitate to recommend

Excellent service throughout, very patient, good information at all times, easy to communicate with – friendly.
