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.
The impact that Brexit will have on family law is no doubt low down on the government’s to-do list (if one of these has actually been created).
But with many families including people who have roots in different European countries, the decisions that are made with regards to how family law will work after Brexit will surely have far-reaching consequences.
A range of EU regulations currently deal with various different aspects of family law, such as divorce, financial settlements and arrangements for children.
The main EU regulations with regards to family law are procedural rather than substantive. They are designed to ensure consistency and keep costs and lengthy legal arguments to a minimum.
If, for example, different jurisdictions could potentially be involved in a divorce, these regulations are there to help decide where the case should be heard and adjudicated.
Regulations are also there to help ensure that once a judge makes a decision on a particular case, it can be recognised and enforced across the EU. This means that at the moment, a divorce which is granted in England and Wales is automatically recognised throughout the EU (except for Denmark).
The European Court of Justice is there to make decisions when questions come up with regards to how the regulations are to be interpreted.
The truth is, that even 24 months after the referendum result, we are really no clearer as to what a post-Brexit Britain will look like. While the government spends its time fighting with itself, what is actually important (negotiating with the EU to discuss what our future will look like) seems to have been all but forgotten.
Put simply, there are still so many unanswered questions, that to build up a clear picture of how many areas, including family law, will work after Brexit, seems almost impossible.
Will we simply replicate EU regulations regarding family law into our own law and keep the reciprocal agreement that we have now, but remain subject to the European Court of Justice? Will we begin the (very lengthy) process of making new arrangements with the EU? Or will we settle somewhere in-between, where we replicate the regulations into our own law but are not subject to the European Court of Justice? However, in this scenario, we may end up having to come to an arrangement where other countries would not have to enforce our courts’ decisions but we would have to enforce theirs.
The government has previously indicated that the UK will be . How this will work with regards to family law remains to be seen.
