Platt and Fishwick Solicitors

Family Law

Platt & Fishwick have a dedicated Family Law Department. We offer a sympathetic approach to all family problems and we appreciate that, whatever the dispute be it a marriage breakdown or issues relating to children, it all needs to be handled in a careful and sensitive way.


The Family Department itself comprises of specialist family lawyers who have a wealth of experience being members of the Family Law Panel, the Family Law (Advanced) Panel and the Children Panel. As such, we can deal with all areas of family law such as divorce, separation, domestic violence, co-habitee disputes, separation agreements, financial matters, residence/contact disputes, care proceedings and adoption. We can represent children in proceedings as well as parents.


We are members of Resolution and, as such, aim to deal with disputes in a fair and conciliatory way whilst still maintaining our client’s best interests at heart. We offer a professional service second to none. We are dedicated, approachable trusted lawyers who endeavour to achieve the best outcome for each individual client.


We are able to offer an initial half hour consultation at a fixed fee during which time we can assess your eligibility for public funding
(ie legal aid). In the event that you are not eligible, you will find our private rates competitive.
