Covid-19 and our family legal services

Listed Under: Blog

The impact of the pandemic in the UK has been significant as we know with a huge knock-on effect of disruption for many aspects of society. However, at J W Hughes & Co. we have continued to provide an excellent legal service for all our clients while many staff have worked remotely from home. This has meant some changes to the way we have traditionally worked, including the use of more emails rather than postal services and meetings with clients virtually via Zoom, Skype or telephone and some remote court hearings.

However, things are now slowly getting back to normal and most of our staff are back in the offices. Although we are not generally offering face-to-face meetings yet, we wish to provide you with the reassurance that we are available and well-equipped to deal with your case in any circumstances and that can continue to provide advisory services without interruption or disruption. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide more options when it is safe to do so.

We understand that separating couples have experienced a particularly challenging time, especially those who have had to live under the same roof in lock down. For anyone encountering matrimonial difficulties, please contact our experienced team of matrimonial lawyers and we will send you an initial questionnaire which will give the solicitor more information. Then, we offer a first meeting free of charge for the initial consultation.. In the current climate, this will be by telephone and within that meeting the solicitor will ask you to explain the issues, will explain your options and the likely procedure, give an estimate of your likely costs, and ask you how you wish to proceed. If you are happy to proceed, we will open a file for you and guide you through the divorce process.

If you have any concerns about your own circumstances, please get in touch with a member of our family team on Llandudno 874774 or Conwy 596596 thank you.
