At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
We have expertise in residence, contact, financial maintenance of children, child relocation and child abduction. We’ll advise you on your rights and obligations and on your options regarding dispute resolution.
The courts are often not best placed to resolve disputes over children, but we have considerable expertise in court when litigation is required. Our team also has two accredited and practising family mediators and two practising collaborative lawyers, for alternative dispute resolution.
As family lawyers with expertise in areas such as residence, contact, financial maintenance of children, child relocation and child abduction, we can give you clear and pragmatic advice on your rights and obligations and on the methods of dispute resolution which may be open to you.
