Affordable Justice has been established to specifically provide legal support and advice for women. The Hull-based solicitor firm offers family law advice and support to women across England and Wales. Matters relating to domestic violence, non-molestation orders, divorce law and family law require legal justice solicitors who charge expensive fees that are beyond the means of many women.
To that end, Affordable Justice acts as family law solicitors in and around Wakefield. Because so few women qualify for legal aid, yet the cost of commercial family law solicitors is by no means affordable, Affordable Justice was established as a non-profit ‘alternative business structure’ law firm to assist the women of Wakefield, Hull, Leeds, and the rest of England and Wales for roughly a third of the commercial price.
If you are based in Wakefield and would like to reach out to our team in Hull, please fill out our contact form for a free initial consultation.
Q: Do you exclusively provide services to women in Hull/East Yorkshire?
A: No, our services can be accessed by all women throughout England and Wales.
Q: How much does an introductory consultation cost?
A: The initial consultation is entirely free of charge and comprises a discussion about your current situation, legal position, and proposed course of action. In the instance that you choose to proceed with our services, we will require an upfront payment.
Q: Are my children allowed to attend my appointment?
A: We are unable to discuss sensitive topics with children present (remotely or in person); however, we do have a purpose-built nursery onsite. We request that you let us know of your need for a nursery session prior to your appointment.
Q: Why can your legal services only be accessed by women?
A: This choice stems from extensive research that informs us that women seeking family law services have been impacted more by legal aid eligibility cuts than anyone else. As a result, we identify as a non-profit law firm that assists women in the navigation of the family law sector.
Q: Is your work classed as legal aid?
A: No, we describe our work as legal advice, assistance, and representation for women who do not qualify for legal aid and cannot afford to pay traditional solicitor fees. In recent years, the accessibility of legal aid has suffered, driving us to provide a more affordable alternative.
Affordable Justice is a non-profit organisation that strives to offer the women of Hull, Wakefield, Leeds, and beyond legal assistance at a considerably lower price.
