Children First McKenzie Friend Services Ltd

AS A MCKENZIE FRIEND I CAN PROVIDE THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE SERVICES THAT A FAMILY LAWYER CAN BUT AT AROUND 25% OF THE COST. TO BE CLEAR I AM NOT A FAMILY LAWYER. I HAVE OVER 40 POSITIVE REVIEWS FROM PREVIOUS SATISFIED CLIENTS FOR REASSURANCE WHEN SIGNING UP FOR MY SERVICES. I AM DBS CHECKED AND CAN PROVIDE A COPY OF THE CERTIFCATE UPON REQUEST. I am a fully trained, professional McKenzie Friend and can provide support, advice and mentoring to my clients as a fee charging layperson in the following areas of the UK family court system: Child Arrangements Cases Breaches of Child Arrangement Orders Fact Finding Hearings Non Molestation Orders Occupation Orders Financial Settlements Divorce Applications The support and services I can offer to clients are as follows: Assistance with completing family court application forms Assistance preparing statements for court hearings Reading and interpreting court documents Attending court hearings both in person and virtually with clients Taking notes during court hearings on the clients behalf Providing moral support throughout the court process I have spent the last 10 years working as a small business owner, for the 15 years prior to this I was employed in a number of office based, customer service and supervisory roles. All of this previous experience provides me with transferable abilities to the role of a McKenzie Friend such as being client focussed, having excellent communication skills, a high level of organisational competency, a strong understanding of IT processes and the ability to support clients in prioritising and managing their own family court journey in an efficient and timely manner. I have a solid understanding of family court processes and can provide straight forward, easy to understand advice as well as emotional support, mentoring and coaching designed to empower clients during this difficult and often stressful period of their lives. I am a Father of 3 and have first hand experience of going through the family courts myself, this gives me the ability to empathise with the circumstances of my clients on not only a professional but also a personal level too.

What do you love most about your job?

The thing I love most about my job is being able to help children to have a full and loving relationship with both of their parents where it is safe and appropriate for this to take place.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Going through the family court system in my own child arrangements case sparked an interest in this field of work for me and lead to me creating Children First McKenzie Friend Services.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients should choose Children First McKenzie Friend Services because as a McKenzie Friend I offer my services at a fraction of the cost of a Family Lawyer or Barrister.

I offer advice that is designed to be easily understood, honest and as free of legal jargon as possible.

All new clients are offered a 30 minute free telephone consultation which can be booked quickly and easily using a link to my online diary and is obligation free.

I am a professionally trained McKenzie Friend who can assist, empower and guide clients through their often stressful family court journey.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.


I can contact clients via telephone or video call if they prefer.

If their court hearings are listed as remote hearings I can also be present virtually with them during those too as well as in person hearings.
