Family Law

We have a dedicated team of family law barristers who can accept instructions directly from the public. This means that our expertise as family lawyers is directly available to you.

For solicitors & organisations | For individuals

As the largest set of barristers’ chambers in London, we offer an unrivalled breadth of experience. We are number one ranked in the independent legal directories, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, so you can be assured your case will be handled with the highest level of expertise.

By instructing a barrister directly, you can reduce or eliminate the costs of engaging a solicitor. Moreover, you will have direct communication with the barrister representing you in court proceedings. 

Once you speak with our helpful Public Access team, your details will be passed to our Public Access barristers. One of the options we offer clients is a free 15 minute telephone consultation with the barrister of your choice. This allows you and the barrister to learn more about the situation and services required, free of charge.


Sadly, family problems continue during this difficult time. Many are finding the current restrictions difficult which is giving rise to additional stress and anxiety.

Some may need a non-molestation or occupation order to protect them from an immediate risk of harm arising from someone in their household. Members of the Garden Court Family Team are able - where capacity allows - to offer a free hour of legal advice to key workers who seek legal advice on how to secure an injunction to protect themselves from harm.  

Others may have problems with contact with their children, some will need financial help or emergency maintenance or general advice on a wide range of family law issues. 

The courts continue to operate, although the vast majority of cases will take place by remote means including video-hearing and telephone links.

Emergency and other applications are still being accepted and processed and whilst it is not “business as usual” the courts are open.

We continue to offer the same service as before with the only change being that all appointments are now by video or telephone and papers will need to be submitted electronically.

If you need help in an emergency or general legal advice please do not hesitate to get in touch.
