Denise was a valued member of our Family Law Team and a hugely popular member of staff. Denise will be sorely missed by all her work colleagues and the legal fraternity in Chester and beyond.

Darlene Storrar, Managing Partner, says:

"Denise was an excellent Family Law Solicitor and a highly valued member of our team. Denise was dedicated to her work and her many clients and we will miss her enormously. Denise was always cheerful and engaging. Our thoughts are with her large supportive family at this very sad time."


Divorce, Separation & Family: Pay-as-you-go Advice

A flexible, affordable service.

Find A Solicitor

If you are in a situation where you're not sure of your rights and just want a discussion to help make sense of things and have any queries answered, we offer an initial advice consultation for a fixed fee.

Similarly, if you are conducting your own DIY divorce or family law proceedings, or are undertaking mediation and need some advice from a solicitor on a pay as you go basis we can help. We understand that not everyone wants or can afford to instruct a solicitor to run their case from start to finish.

Some examples of work we can carry out as Pay-as-you-go include:

  • Meetings to provide advice about your rights and the options available to you or to answer any questions you have.
  • Drafting of legal documents, for example Court applications, financial consent orders and witness statements.
  • Drafting proposals for settlement.
  • Providing legal advice regarding family mediation you are undertaking.

At Storrar Cowdry, we know that every client's situation is unique which is why we offer our Pay-as you-go service to ensure complete flexibility and affordability.

The expert solicitors in our Family Team have a wealth of experience dealing with divorce, separation and annulment of marriage.

They can also help with financial and property disputes, break ups of civil partnerships, pre-nuptial agreements & post-nuptial agreements, pension sharing and maintenance, child support, residence, contact and parental responsibility and unmarried couple’s disputes.

We can help with advice and assistance for all of the above on as pay-as-you-go basis.
