Family Law

Here to resolve your difficulties


Freeman Johnson has a dedicated team of family law specialists who are skilled in resolving difficult and upsetting issues. Explore your situation with a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your options and provide a breakdown of the financial costs. You will also find out if your case qualifies for any form of legal aid.

The team is spread across offices in Durham, Spennymoor, Darlington and Northallerton to cover all of North East England. Each office has a dedicated family solicitor–please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need support.

Freeman Johnson covers all aspects of family law, including divorce, financial remedy, cohabitation and children disputes. You will be referred to a local solicitor who can explore your options in full and tailor your case accordingly.

Legal Accreditation

The firm’s family law solicitors are all members of Resolution, a UK organisation of legal professionals dedicated to resolving family problems in a non-confrontational manner. Freeman Johnson also has solicitors with Children Law Accreditation from the Law Society.

From our team, Helen Lannagan and Natalie Nunn are members of the Law Society Children Panel, meaning their expertise has been independently assessed to represent both children and adults in care proceedings.

Child Law Specialists

For childcare law cases, free 30-minute consultations are available to assess legal aid eligibility. After a local authority issues court proceedings, it’s vital to obtain urgent specialist advice. This is because you could be entitled to automatic legal aid that will cover all costs for your legal advice and representation during the entire case.

Freeman Johnson will provide you with a highly experienced child solicitor to handle your cases from start to finish. They will offer realistic advice and challenge local authority plans on your behalf. The firm is here to advise and represent parents, grandparents and other family members or friends who are caring for or want to care for children.
