Blackhurst Budd has one of the largest family law departments on the Fylde Coast and are pleased to assist clients in all areas of family law.

  • For Divorce, Civil Partnership Dissolutions and relationship breakdown.
  • For Children issues, including Residence and Contact disputes, Care proceedings, Social Services involvement and adoption matters.
  • For emergency assistance in relation to domestic violence, injunctions and non-molestation Orders.
  • For new relationships, cohabitations agreements, pre-nuptial agreements and pre-civil partnership agreements.
  • For Change of Name Deeds for adults and children.

Legal Aid is still available in many areas of work, despite the 2013 government cuts.  For those clients who find that legal aid is not available to them, we have introduced competitive Fixed Fee packages.

  • Fixed Fee divorce packages and staged payments are available in most cases.
  • Legal Aid is available where there is Social Services involvement, where the Local Authority is involved and when your children may be removed from your care.

Legal Aid is available for emergency applications and situations concerning domestic violence or Social Services involvement.

Unfortunately, not all marriages, civil partnerships or relationships are a success. At Blackhurst Budd we appreciate that family law disputes are often very upsetting and pride ourselves on being able to provide practical guidance and support in a sensitive and confidential manner, alongside the focused legal advice that you would expect. 

We have many years expertise in all areas of family law, with colleagues recognised by the Law Society Children’s Panel and Caron Bridson sitting as a part-time Judge.

We believe in negotiation and mediation where possible and are able to seek early resolutions to disputes saving you time, money and upset.  However, when negotiation is not possible, we are experienced and efficient in pursuing the matter through the Courts.
