In Family Law we cover a variety of different matters; divorce and dissolution, financial separation, child arrangements and domestic violence. We understand that families can be complicated, and family disputes can be very sensitive and stressful. At Bushra Ali Solicitors, we will do everything we can, legally speaking, to ease the stress in such situations.
With very little Legal Aid available for Family Law matters, we are one of the few firms in Leicester to offer fixed fees for all of the cases that we take on. This means that you will know what you can expect to pay right from the start, and will not have to worry about how big your monthly solicitor’s bill will be.
We were very pleased to have a new member of staff join our Family Law department at the start of the year. Stephanie Clifton is a Trainee Legal Executive, she graduated with a law degree in 2014 and is now working towards her qualification as a Legal Executive. Legal Executives do the same work as a solicitor, it is simply a different route to qualification, so you can rest assured that you will receive the same service. Stephanie has worked in Family Law for almost three years now. She started off specialising in a busy domestic violence department and then went on to work in private family law before joining Bushra Ali Solicitors. The Department is led by Head of Practice, Ms Bushra Ali but Stephanie will be the primary contact for all Family Law matters and would be very happy to help.
Bushra Ali Solicitors are also proud to launch our new “Divorce Drop In” sessions. These will be held every other Wednesday, commencing on 7th March 2018. They will be a free drop-in sessions in which you can come in and have a chat with one of our family case workers about getting a divorce, what it involves, how long it takes and how much it will cost. Please contact us to check availability for the next session and book your slot. Alternatively, we are always happy to have a chat over the phone.
In our Wills department, we cover a variety of matters including Wills, Lasting Power of Attorney, Guardianship, Asset protection trusts, disabled persons trusts, inheritance tax planning and funeral arrangements.
It is never nice to think about a time when you will no longer be here, but putting the right documents in place can help to ensure that, when the time comes, there is less stress and heartache for your family. It also ensures that your assets and affairs are dealt with in line with your wishes, both if you lose capacity or when you’re no longer with us. .
We also offer a free drop-in clinic for Wills which usually takes place on the final Thursday of every month. Please contact us to book your slot or to have a chat with one of our specialist Wills advisers over the phone.
Our website will soon be updated to include all of our new services but in the meantime, please feel free to contact us to book your slot at one of our drop-ins or ask for Stephanie Clifton who would be happy to assist with any queries.
