Rugby, United Kingdom
I am a Paralegal within the Family Department in the Rugby Office assisting customers in all aspects of Family Law. I have a range of knowledge in respect of divorce, financial issues arising from divorce, separation, civil partnerships and including issues relating to the arrangements for children. I also represent customers at Court and I have an expert knowledge of financial Consent Orders.
I also work with the Fixed Price Divorce Team dealing with online Consent Orders which is a unique service in the area of Matrimonial Law. It is convenient, efficient and offers fixed-price cost certainty to our customers. This is important as this can often be an emotionally-fraught process and having peace of mind that your best interests are being taken care of in an economical and progression matter can make a big difference.
