Please note that the Child Law Advice Service is closed from 4pm on the 24th December 2019 and will re-open at 8am on the 2nd January 2020.
We provide an email advice service on education and family law. To use this service please use the relevant link below. Our email advice service is to provide clarifying questions or for initial legal advice.
Unfortunately we are unable to assist with complex legal queries via our email advice service and would request that you contact us via our telephone advice line for complex queries.
If we do deem your email to be too complex, we will email you and request that you contact us via our advice line.
