Family Law

Arrangements for Children

You can trust us

We appreciate that decisions where children are involved are not only extremely important but must be handled with sensitivity and care.

At Browell Smith & Co Solicitors we have extensive experience in this field across the North East, and understand that our clients and their children may well be experiencing great emotional stress.

This is why you can trust our family law team to handle all matters with sensitivity and care, advising you on all the options available to help resolve any issues which may arise in relation to children.

Our experts will listen to you, explain your options and work with you towards the best possible outcome for you and your family.
