Preparing for your consultation

We are able to offer you free access to our online application called Engage. This application is ‘intelligent’, adapting to your specific circumstances to capture all of the information that would traditionally be gathered in a face-to-face meeting with a lawyer. Gathering this vital information often takes at least the first hour of a consultation. Engage allows you to capture all of this essential information before our first consultation, which means we can start providing support and guidance from the outset. We strongly recommend that you complete this information prior to our first consultation as it will allow us to tailor our initial advice accordingly. Please ask one of our team members if you would like the link to use this system.

What our clients say

It’s my first time when I use a solicitor, and Jaime she was great! I appreciate her time and effort to explain everything to me!

I’ve never needed to use a solicitor before and from being under loads of stress I decided to go to one for some legal help. I’m so glad I chose BTMK. They were extremely friendly and helpful and made sure I understood everything to get the best outcome needed that also met what I wanted.

I had a serious family matter that needed dealing with , I got put in contact with Jamie lee johns, and she was amazing .. always at the end of the phone willing to help , she put everything In understandable terms and always done her up most to help … she was so knowledgeable

Facing the prospect of Divorce and having no real idea of how to navigate the legal side of things I am very happy to recommend BTMK.

At a time of intense personal stress the team worked with me with such clarity that I was able to make clear and concise decisions on what is a life changing event based upon their knowledge and expertise.

My future and that of my children’s is all the better and secure for using such a professional service.

Lee really provided some clarity at what was a very difficult time and gave me the appropriate advice and support to help me with my divorce and making sure I protected my own interest in my assets. Lee was on hand whenever I needed his advice and was very helpful. He certainly made the whole process a lot smoother and have since recommended him to other people in a similar situation.

Jaime-Lee has been amazing. She has been very supportive and she has been able to advise me every step of the way during a difficult period. She’s always there when I need her, whether by email or telephone call. I would highly recommend her. Thank you for all your advice and hard work Jaime!

I contacted Lee Wilcockson after he was recommended to me. I was facing a divorce after a messy break-up. I knew my estranged husband had a budget that far outreached mine and I had concerns that an order for finances against me would be completely out of my financial ability to defend.

Lee Wilcockson offered straight advice and was very thorough and calming with his advice from the outset. Lee was able to defuse what could have been a very volatile matter. He very quickly understood what my priorities were and he was able to keep me focused on the matters of importance without getting drawn into ‘tit-for-tat’ arguments.

Thanks to Lee’s advice, a matter that could easily have extended into a year or more and costs many thousands more, was dealt with efficiently with an agreement in place and ordered through the courts in far less amount of time and therefore cost considerably less too.

Lee showed that he has a genuine passion for what he does and his compassion to his clients is demonstrated through him arguing for what he sees to be right rather than simply going through the motions to raise more fees.

I would highly recommend Lee Wilcockson without hesitation.

I instructed Charlotte to prepare my divorce on BTMK’s fixed fee scheme. My divorce proceeded quickly and without any problems. I was kept up to date at every stage of the divorce and provided assistance if required. Although I am on a low income I consider the amount I paid for the fixed fee is the best money I have spent, and the advice I received was invaluable in that period of my life.

- Mrs C, Shoeburyness

The Grounds for Divorce

There is currently a strong case for no fault divorce to be introduced into UK law. With many believing that a couple should be able to get divorced on the grounds that a relationship has failed, rather than having to hold either person accountable. However, in the meantime there is only one ground to request a divorce. That is that it must be proven that the marriage...
