Happy First Birthday Family First
A year after its launch Ridley & Hall celebrates the success of Family First.
Family First is an innovative and unique service that supports families in need of legal advice. This service allows clients at Ridley & Hall to choose the level of support they require for divorce, children and financial cases and in doing so they choose the price that they pay.
Meena Kumari, Head of Family at Ridley & Hall, explains:
“There have been many challenges in family law in the last 12 months with many firms closing their doors after the loss of Legal Aid. These profound changes have affected clients’ ability to access legal advice. When a relationship breaks down, the next steps you decide to take and the thought of legal action can often be overwhelming. Family First offers clients greater freedom of choice and an opportunity to save money on legal costs, with our costs starting from only £200.
Family First offers an alternative that is both affordable and transparent. The level of support includes a checking service for court documents, a do-it-yourself with help service where our clients pick and choose when you seek assistance and a pay as you go service which helps you budget.”
Statistics shows that there are more clients representing themselves in court proceedings. Litigants in person often need legal advice for only part of their case, for example, at a hearing. Family First offers this flexibility.
The Family First team wants to help resolve your dispute as painlessly and cost effectively as possible. We offer a free half an hour consultation, where we can talk you through your options and costs.
