Christmas is the time for making lists. And not just for excited children. For adults too, this is a good moment to think about the year ahead.

There are so many things on our minds at the moment, especially when relationships are not going the way we want them to go. Whether it be worrying about finances, trying to manage set-backs or even a broken heart, the most important thing you need to navigate your way through is a plan.

Whatever your needs may be when it comes to the family law difficulties you face our choice of solutions is almost as long as Santa’s delivery list.

Better still, from 3 January 2017, we will be able to offer you a more streamlined process to resolve financial matters via the Court so that you can move on with your life more quickly.

The new early evaluation protocol which will be offered exclusively at our local family Court in Blackburn means that you can have a simple, speedy and more predictable start to the New Year when resolving financial matters following the breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership.

This is the only scheme of its kind in the country. It will create a fast track and ensure a predictable timescale, judicial evaluation, judicial continuity and perhaps most importantly no adjournments which means a perfect plan for a happier 2017.
