For Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Adoption and Parental Rights Solicitors

When you are considering adoption, it’s important to know that the legal advice you are being given is tailored to your specific needs.

Browell Smith & Co has a dedicated legal team with a wealth of experience in family law that can give your particular case the utmost care and attention.

Whether you are considering adoption or embarking on the process then it is important that you know your legal position.

Our team has experience of advising and representing single parents, step-parents, same sex couples, UK agency adoption and inter-country adoption.

We are able to work with you and advise you step by step on the options available to you from the beginning to end of the adoption journey.

Costs & Working with us

When you first contact us, we will discuss with you your situation by way of email or telephone to explore your requirements and see how we can help.

The next step is to arrange a meeting. This can be face-to-face, or by telephone or Skype. We will send you our terms of business setting out clearly our charges in writing before we meet you. We offer an initial fixed cost legal advice session to enable you to obtain quality legal advice tailored to your situation. This session will enable us to advise you on future costs, timescales and the best way to move your case forward.

We will follow up the session with written advice to you.

We are dedicated to our clients and feel that it is essential that we are up front and honest about our costs. We pride ourselves on being transparent with no hidden charges.

There are many ways that we can help you and the following cost options will be considered and agreed with you where possible:

Fixed costs

Full service representation

Pay as you go/additional advice as things progress

Assistance at Court packages to help support you if you choose to represent yourself in court

Assistance at mediation package to help support your process at mediation

Legal drafting of agreements reached at a fixed cost

We additionally work with litigation funding organisations who provide finance to enable you to fund a court case. We will work through the application process and explain the terms on which a loan may be offered.

You may also be able to seek a Legal Services Order from the court to secure your legal fees to be met from the other party. We will discuss with you whether this would be an appropriate course of action for you.
