Imogen met with Jane*, a married woman caring for a grandchild, who wanted advice following her separation from her husband. She had been to mediation and it had failed. She wanted to know what her options were before committing to instructing a particular barrister on her case.
During their meetings, Imogen and Jane discussed how to file for divorce and the procedure for division of assets. Jane’s case was more complex as she was also caring for a grandchild. This meant she required additional, tailored advice on Special Guardianship (where a relative applies for a legally secure order to take care of a child when the child’s parent’s cannot) and information about how her divorce could effect this. This was not a problem for Imogen, who guided Jane through her options and gave her tailored legal advice.
Jane found Imogen’s advice insightful, which led her to decide to formally instruct Imogen to assist her with her divorce, division of assets and special guardianship. The case is ongoing.
Jane said she was attracted by the friendly service at Hampshire Family Law and she felt that Imogen could provide access to advice every step of the way. Jane was also delighted to be offered a free no obligation consultation, which helped her understand her case and ensure Imogen was the right barrister for her.
