“Your service has begun to turn my life around. After 5 years in the court systems with poor legal support, I have now taken control and your advice was instrumental in safeguarding my five year old who was exposed to violence and abuse during contact with her father. I would not be here without you and cannot thank you enough.”
We can advise you on:
- domestic violence and abuse
- divorce, finances and property on relationship breakdown
- cohabitation, finances and property on relationship breakdown
- parental responsibility and arrangements for children
- lesbian parenting

We offer free legal advice to women in England and Wales.
We can only advise in English on the law as it applies in England and Wales.
The advice line can be extremely busy. Please keep trying to get through.
The women solicitors and barristers who advise on our evening sessions are all volunteers. This means that occasionally we have to close the line, sometimes at short notice.
