Affordable Justice are a team of solicitors that specialises in family law. After all, without the guidance of a solicitor, family law confusing and complicated to understand. Affordable Justice is exclusively for women across England and Wales.
Far too often, we see vulnerable women not qualifying for legal aid; however, they cannot afford to pay the extortionate fees for commercial solicitors. Therefore, we established ourselves as a non-profit ‘alternative business structure’ law firm to assist the women of Hull, Leeds, and the rest of England and Wales for about a third of the commercial cost.
If you are situated in Castleford and would like to contact our team in Hull, please get in touch.
Q: Are your services only offered throughout Castleford, Hull and East Yorkshire?
A: No, we offer legal advice, assistance, and representation to all women in England and Wales.
Q: How much do you charge for an initial discussion?
A: Your initial discussion with us will be completely free of charge. This will involve gathering some information about your current situation, and a suggested course of action. Following this, if you want to proceed with our services, we’ll require an upfront payment.
Q: Are my children permitted to attend my appointment?
A: Whether it is remotely or in person, we cannot discuss sensitive areas in the presence of your children. Despite this, we do have a purpose-built nursery onsite. Therefore, we ask that anyone wishing to make use of our facilities informs us of their requirements before their appointment.
Q: Why are your services exclusive to women?
A: Our research has found that women seeking family law services have been worst affected by the significant legal aid eligibility cuts. It’s because of this that we established ourselves as a registered charity to assist women in family law matters.
Q: Do you offer legal aid?
A: Our services are not the same as legal aid; what we offer is legal advice, assistance, and representation to women who do not qualify for legal aid and cannot afford to pay for a commercial solicitor. In the last few years, legal aid accessibility has suffered, which is what inspired our mission of providing a more affordable alternative.
Affordable Justice is a charity that strives to provide the women of Hull, Castleford, and beyond with legal assistance at a greatly reduced cost.
