Important information

The Ascent advice line offers free legal advice to women in London only. If you are outside London contact our national family law advice line or our national criminal law advice line

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.

Calls are charged at the local rate and calls from mobiles vary according to your network provider and calling plan.
