Thoroughly excellent service provided via Wikivorce. Was slightly apprehensive of how it would all work, especially at a distance. However, they were swift, efficient, immensely polite, accurate, and gave regular updates. I would recommend them to anyone.
Can't fault my experience in any way. Brilliant advice / available at short notice for any questions and most importantly swiftly achieved the desired result. Found Austin Kemp after feeling HCB Solicitors were not acting in my best interests and I was correct on all fronts - even including having an appreciation for the fact Divorce is already emotional situation. Also, rather than have to query every suggested next step and be charged for the pleasure; As I'd done a little research of my own and was able to challenge their advice - however we pay Solicitors for their expertise and need to put our trust in them. Austin Kemp thankfully achieved that for me during our first conversation I was already reassured they understood what I wanted and how best to achieve it. Resulting in 7-8 months less work and no court appearances as I had been previously advised by HCB. I THANK YOU DEARLY AUSTIN KEMP. I can start my life again earlier and with a healthier bank balance because of you!!!
Amazing service. For the first time in nearly two years I feel less in a spiral and more in control.
Thoroughly professional, straightforward, timely and reasonably priced. I would recommend this firm to anyone. Thank you Emma and Austen Kemp for a great service.
Thank you so much. You were great. I wasted so much time and money with my previous solicitors and only regret I did not contact you earlier. I have dropped a line to Paul to thank him for referring me to you. I hope you enjoyed the red I sent you as a token of our appreciation.
Austin Kemp provides a pragmatic and honest approach to the individual's journey through Family Law issues. They demonstrate a willingness and capacity to respond to challenging and unpredictable circumstances. The professional, yet personal, service is naturally client centred, but with a realistic and informed view of children's needs. And it has been heartening to have such a caring team walk beside me in the long journey.
I cannot recommend highly enough Austin Kemp as a strong, commercially intelligent and the most effective negotiators. Their negotiation skills are second to none. I have seen firsthand the excellent results this team achieves for their clients.
Just want to say thanks so much for everything. You have been brilliant and very patient. I always felt comfortable calling when asking to clarify certain points of the divorce.
I can honestly say that I am more than satisfied with the management of my case and of my then state of mind. I highly recommend this firm. Thank you.
Amandeep Kooner was not prepared to be swayed from a path of professionalism to accommodate my anxiety and frustration. He would not succumb to taking instructions tit for tat response. He ensured at all times that the response he gave reflected a dignified client with a pleasant demeanour. In so doing he demonstrated his commitment to protect and secure my interests and dignity off which I am most grateful.
Although he has a dual approached role which is business and a duty of care, Amandeep Kooner showed concerns for the level of expenditure that I had already put out with no resolve. His team contained the work to the minimum and produced the maximum results. My case was quickly progressed without compromising compassion and understanding.
Very professional service! Explained everything they were doing for my case every step of the way and really helped me to understand how we would proceed. Thank you!
Intellectually bright, hardworking and extremely professional - Amandeep Kooner took my case at it most difficult as I had come to the end of my ability to remain calm and patient. Up until I instructed Austin Kemp, I had lost all hope that any solicitor could convince me in pursuing a non-retaliatory approach as I was losing ground to allegations and fabrications. Tough, hardworking and extremely professional.
Angelina reportedly said that she had concerns about how Brad was parenting their children – if this is true, their custody arrangements could end in a complex legal battle.
Sometimes, if a parent has concerns about how the other parent is interacting with their children, they may be tempted to make a recording of them with the children, or even make recordings of themselves and the other parent. Most people intend to use this as evidence in family court proceedings.
Recording someone without them knowing you’re doing it is not illegal in itself. It’s what you do with the recording that matters. If you only intend to use the recording for personal, family or household affairs, then it is usually fine to record someone without their knowledge.
If you wanted to take the recording to a family court as evidence when dealing with custody arrangements, then, as family proceedings are private, you wouldn’t normally be seen as breaking any law. You will, however, have to apply to the court for permission to use the recording.
In order for a court to give permission for a recording to be used as evidence in your custody arrangements proceedings, the recording must be relevant to your case. A solicitor should be able to advise you as to whether a court may or may not see your recording as relevant.
Bear in mind that you cannot edit the recording.
It’s a good idea to make a transcript of the recording to give to the court in your custody arrangements proceedings.
Speaking to your solicitor can help you to make sure that what you’re planning on recording is going to help your particular case and that you aren’t breaking any laws.
Recording someone without their knowledge can cause damage to your relationship with that person. Before undertaking any recordings, you have to ask yourself whether what you hope to gain from taking the recording, is worth this potential conflict.
You should also make sure that the place you’re intending to conduct your recording in, is a place that is free from any rules prohibiting recordings.
It’s also important that you don’t circulate the transcript or the recording to a wider audience – as this could be breaking the law.
Recording someone without their knowledge may be useful in some circumstances, but it’s important to understand the risks that this could bring to your relationship with that person/people. By speaking to a solicitor beforehand, you can ensure that you give anything you do record the best chance of being permitted for use in the family courts.
