Legal services for You

Here to make your life less complicated – Personal Legal Advice in Gloucestershire

Life can be complicated and full of ups and downs. So it’s good to know you have legal experts you can trust by your side, who can smooth out the ride.

We provide all the legal services you’re likely to need throughout your life – from buying your first home to making plans to take care of your loved ones after you’ve gone. And as one legal issue often leads to another (for example selling your home may require the redrafting of your Will), we like to build relationships with you that last. As your needs change, we can change with you.

Our legal experts can assist you with all aspects of the law and offer you support, and sensible, robust advice. You’ll always have a single point of contact who’ll be a legal expert in the field you require and who’ll take the time to get to know you. It doesn’t matter which member of the team you’re dealing with, we can always meet you at the WSP office that’s most convenient to you.

Our legal services for you

Family Law

They say home is where the heart is, but it can also be where heartbreak happens. We know just how painful and emotionally draining it can be to go through a relationship breakdown or a dispute with someone you used to be close to.

Our family law solicitors are here to help you find the light in the dark and reach a positive outcome as soon as possible so you can move on with your life.

Our family law services include:

We specialise in helping families reach agreements about issues out of court, so you don’t have to worry about the costs and stress of attending court hearings. However, where needed we’re ready to fight your corner in court.

So, whether you need help making co-parenting arrangements after a break up, you want to put a prenup in place to protect your financial interests, social services are getting involved in your family or any other legal issue, our friendly, reliable team can support you.

Divorce & Civil Partnership Dissolution

Getting divorced or ending your civil partnership can be lifechanging, but it doesn’t have to be too stressful. The word divorce may conjure up images of couples screaming at each other in courtrooms under the supervision of a stern-faced judge, but in reality, and with the right support, it’s much easier to deal with than you might think.

Our divorce solicitors are here to demystify the divorce and civil partnership dissolution process and help you sort out all the legal details, including:

  • Filing your divorce petition or civil partnership dissolution application.
  • Responding to a divorce petition or civil partnership dissolution application if your partner has already started the process.
  • Making sure each stage of the process is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible, such as applying for the decree absolute/final order at the earliest possible date.
  • Helping you sort out financial matters, such as agreeing the division of money and property, and organising financial provision for your children.
  • Sorting out arrangements for children, such as deciding which parent they will live with and how much contact they should have with various family members.

Wills, Trusts and Probate

When a person passes away, it’s inevitable that something has to happen with their money, property and belongings.

Our warm and sensitive Wills, trusts and probate solicitors can provide a wide range of services to help you plan for the future and put other people’s plans into effect, including:

We can also help with:

  • Drafting Lasting Powers of Attorney to give people you trust the ability to manage your financial and welfare affairs in case you lose mental capacity in the future.
  • Court of Protection advice where someone you know or care for has lost their mental capacity and needs help making decisions about their finances and welfare.

Dispute Resolution

People get into disagreements every day. But unless they’re handled carefully and diplomatically, they can often escalate into serious legal disputes. Before this happens, it’s important to get the expert legal opinion of a lawyer who can advise you on your rights and options, giving you a better chance of resolving the dispute without unnecessary stress or expense.

Our dispute resolution solicitors have a reputation as strong negotiators and formidable litigators. We can support you with a wide range of legal disputes, including:

  • Property disputes
  • Will and inheritance disputes
  • Contract disputes
  • Consumer disputes
  • Personal debt recovery

Residential Property Conveyancing

When you move house, remortgage or undertake any other kind of property transaction, you want the process to be as simple, so you don’t have to worry about it or interrupt your busy schedule to deal with problems.

We understand this, so our priority is to support you through your transaction as straightforwardly and painlessly as possible. We’ll work fast, keep you updated and always be on hand to answer your questions.

Our conveyancing solicitors can help you with all types of residential property transaction, including:

  • Buying and selling a house or flat
  • Advice about freehold and leasehold property
  • Remortgages
  • Transfers of equity
