We are confident that we can provide an ethical, strategic and cost-effective way through the potential minefield of family law. We know nobody relishes entering into a family law issue, but once you are there you need to find the best navigation through it.

A lawyer will then discuss your case with you and let you know what Family Law Cafe can do for you. We can offer you a case plan and our recommendations – then you can decide which level of ongoing support and mentoring you want.

We offer a personalised service that takes into account your financial situation.

You can choose what level of service you want and can afford. With access to our experts and strategy you should achieve your goals faster than the traditional route and saving time saves money.

We discuss with you which experts you need and liaise with them to ensure they charge you competitively and transparently, this will include a percentage sum paid to us. Once they are working on your case we liaise with them and with you to make sure everything is going to plan and decide if any changes to strategy need to be made.
