Accessible legal advice
Long before the COVID-19 crisis, the lawyers at Miles & Partners Solicitors had been working remotely. In cases such as international child abduction or a transatlantic divorce, we have been liaising with clients, case workers and other legal representatives via video-conferencing to provide legal advice and support.
Since 19 March 2020, everyone is working remotely to ensure that our clients and staff can be kept safe and supported during this difficult time. With our tried and tested processes, and a fully staffed telephones and IT, it is (almost) business as usual.
There may be changes to the time and date of some court hearings and we will keep you informed if there are any changes to arrangements.

Here for a family emergency at any time
You do not have to put up with abuse or bad behaviour, just because you are in isolation. There may also be child arrangements to discuss because of school closures and illness. You may be in the process of negotiating a financial settlement during divorce proceedings and are unsure what to do now that the economic landscape has changed or you may need to reduce how much you pay your former spouse, because your income has reduced – you have been furloughed.
We are here to help in any way we can.
When you are in a safe place, you can contact our family law team on 020 7426 0400. We will do our best to contact you as soon as possible to arrange a safe time to discuss matters.

At this time of national emergency, the welfare of clients and individuals detained in hospital, deprived of their liberty or requiring advice and assistance in relation to mental capacity issues remains at the forefront of our practice. Our lawyers will continue to work throughout this period to ensure that those requiring access to justice are provided with legal help and assistance.
