Birdsall and Snowball Solicitors and Robert Goodwill MP are supporting Good Divorce week commencing 30th November 2020. Good Divorce Week is an annual campaign that aims to promote practical and constructive ways for separating parents to put the needs of their children first.

Our family solicitor Alison Lewis is a member of Resolution, so contact her today for advice. Tel. 01723 351351 or email
