Family Law Solicitors in Lancashire Buck Trend with Increase in Enquiries


The family law team at Farleys Solicitors in Lancashire has seen a growth in enquiries and new clients despite claims that couples in the region who are experiencing marital difficulties are refraining from seeking divorce advice due to the continuing fragility of the economy.

The firm has seen a dramatic increase in the number of divorce files opened over recent months, with one month seeing a 92% increase compared to the same period last year.

Antonia Love, Partner and head of family law at Farleys commented:

“We are continuing to see a steady increase in enquiries despite recent claims that people are ‘financially trapped’ in marriages they would rather end. Notwithstanding the recession and the decline in the housing market, we are finding that couples are keen to find a resolution to the breakdown of their relationship, and there are affordable routes for these people to follow, such as collaborative law and fixed fee divorces.

"Autumn is traditionally one of the peak periods for divorce enquiries and we saw a marked increase in enquiries during this period compared to the previous month and to files opened last year.

“In response to the steady increase in enquiries, and in preparation for January, which another busy period, the department has been strengthened with two new hires. We welcome Renu Rai, previously of Lees Solicitors LLP, and Joanne Lever, who joins us from John Swindell & Co in Blackburn”.

The team of family law solicitors at Farleys is one of the largest in the North West, with over 28 staff. The family law solicitors in Manchester, Blackburn, Burnley and Accrington offer legal advice on family law matters, including divorce, separation, child contact, family financial matters, civil partnerships and pre-nuptial agreements.
