Domestic Conveyancing - this is vital to ensure that the house you are buying is transferred into your ownership without third-party rights or problems.
Family Law - Woodcocks can give you straightforward advice and lend a sympathetic ear on a wide range of family law issues including separation and divorce, financial disputes, co-habitation disputes, civil partnerships, residence and contact disputes, domestic violence or injunctions, adoptions and abductions. As members of Resolution, Woodcocks work towards a fair and peaceful solution, rather than battle tactics.
