Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience. I am sorry to hear of your situation. Weekends are a difficult time however some firms do have duty cover during weekends or emergency numbers that you can call. I would say go on the lawsociety website and use their search solicitor search box and you can filter to find family lawyers local to you and you literally just have to go on their websites and make calls.
Now if you can show that you only got served yesterday and if you appear not represented you stand a good chance of getting the matter adjourned because there would be no real point on going ahead if you have not got the time to bring yourself to speed with the claim brought against you. Check your home insurance policy or any other policies you may have too just in case you have cover for legal expenses and you could give them a call to see if this is a type of dispute they would cover, if they do you will have taken care of the headache of finding a solicitor yourself. I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
