Relationships and Children Resources

We know that when relationships break down it can put a lot of pressure on you and your family.  Our expert family law solicitors in Sheffield, Mansfield and Chesterfield are highly experienced and will tailor their advice depending on your circumstances. Our family law specialists achieve solutions through confidential settlements and are always on hand to provide support when resolving family law issues. We have worked on many family law cases and each individual receives the upmost care and consideration throughout the case.

Advice from friends and family is well meaning, and you need their support, but the information they can give often relates to circumstances which are different to your own giving you false expectations and can mislead you, unintentionally. Always seek professional advice from a family law specialist.

At Banner Jones we will advise you from the outset if there will be any funding available to you. You may also benefit from our fixed fee packages. We will always provide a clear indication from the beginning to the expected level of fees which may be incurred.

At Banner Jones we have Resolution and Collaborative Law accredited specialists who have trained to the high levels expected of Resolution Specialists. We will endeavour to look for a non-confrontational solution, although in some cases we appreciate that this may not always be possible.
