The FLC team will analyse, strategise and mentor you through your issue and make sure your case starts, continues and ends in the best way possible. There are three levels of support.  Your Host takes information and processes your initial enquiry.  Your Expeditor, an experienced lawyer, will help you with key decisions. Your Server will assist in day to day matters. You will never need to struggle alone or worry. We’ll be with you all the way.


Family law cases are as different as the families they come from. Some situations can be resolved through mediation, others lend themselves to collaborative law or arbitration, sometimes a letter or two will sort it out and at other times it goes straight to court. It is essential that you have early analysis and do not take your case down a fruitless and expensive path. We are industry insiders with decades of experience. We think about which expert you may need, who will work well with you, discuss your budget and assist you obtaining a legal payment plan if you need it. We liaise with the experts working with you and your Expeditor stays with you to make sure all goes to plan.


Our unique digital platform contains all of your case materials. You access it by a two stage secure login. From here you can see any important dates in your case calendar, speak with your Expeditor and case experts by instant messaging and all your essential case papers are available to you. The use of email, hard copy letters and retaining paper files is redundant. You are sent a text message when something new happens in your matter and you can then choose a time to log in. This means you are free to get on with your life safe in the knowledge that your family law matter is being securely managed. You save money because any further experts needed such as accountants can conveniently access the papers they need with your permission.

What our customers say about us

Less than 4 months ago I feared that I would not see my 2 year old child outside of horrid contact centres with long periods apart that would infringe on what I believe to be a critical time for bonding.

I was recommended Joanna by another family barrister due to her wealth of experience. Following a chat over the telephone I was convinced she was right for the case.

Her support during the case and strategy was brilliant. I was able to see my son through interim contact orders whilst we were attending court. Due to the strong opposition I am still in shock as to how i was eventually granted everything I asked for on a court order to last my sons childhood so I need not return to court again. Furthermore I am overwhelmed that I now wont go more than a day without seeing my son as Facetime was granted.

Joanna is loyal and honest … [She] stuck to her word of getting things done swiftly keeping costs low. Furthermore following the case for contact she provided me with support throughout the financial settlement via Family Law Cafe, despite it being dealt with by a different solicitor. Carol her colleague was very supportive and always ready to help. Her professionalism in dealing with any concerns was second to none which is needed at times of emotional stress.

I highly recommend Family Law Cafe and using their online forum so that all your documents are visible and accessible to anyone involved in your case. It saves a lot of stress sending documents and keeping everyone informed of what is happening as they can all log on and view comments and documents.

Myself and my son will forever be in their debt.

Family Law Café provided me with useful information explaining the process giving fact based advice and information and tailored an approach to fit my case to ensure a successful outcome. Joanna and Carol were there to support me and answer my questions pro-actively to put my mind at rest. They found a suitable barrister who did a great job of representing my case, and the outcome surpassed my expectations in an extremely timely manner.

Great professional service and would recommend to anyone needing assistance.

When something new cropped up in my financial life a year after the final order for finances I could not face going back to the battleground of the court process.  I explained the issue to you and you speedily got me detailed and accurate advice and as a result everything was sorted within weeks and my worries were over.  I can’t thank you enough.
