Following the recent success of the free advice surgery in Buxton, the Chesterfield Family Law office announces that they will be starting two more surgeries, in the areas of Matlock and Bakewell.

The Matlock advice surgery will commence on 6th November 2014 at Matlock Sure Start Children’s Centre, School Road, Matlock, DE4 3DS and will be run on the first Thursday of every month.

The Bakewell advice surgery will commence on 17th November 2014 at Bakewell Sure Start Children’s Centre, Granby Road, Bakewell, DE45 1ES and will be run on the third Monday of every month.

These new advice surgeries will enable local people to call in during the day for a free initial meeting with one of the family law team. The advice surgery will provide preliminary advice on divorce or family law issues that people may be worried about, details on the options available to them, timescales involved and any funding options available for legal cases.

Anyone can attend without needing to make an appointment and representatives from Family Law Group should be able to see them the same day during the advice surgery hours of 2.00pm to 5.00pm.

Both Sure Start Children’s Centre provide access to early education, childcare, family support and support services in the home or community for parents and carers, child and family health services, information and advice. Ben Clulee, Associate Solicitor at Chesterfield Family Law, comments: “We are really pleased to provide this service to a wider community as there seems to be a growing need for legal advice relating to family matters and we are sure that this free service will be well received”.

The family law team are experienced and trained in all aspects of family law including, divorce & separation, children contact, residence & social services, matrimonial finance & property and mediation.
