About Us

Child Law Partnership are a specialist family law firm and we do nothing else.

We have expertise combined with the very highest standards in customer care,
where clients, staff and people count.

Our Story

Child Law Partnership was established in 2001 in Guildford by Philip Bennett and Peta Malthouse to provide specialist legal advice and representation in children’s cases. Since that time the firm has expanded in terms of size and the areas of family law serviced.

We now provide our clients with advice, support and representation on a whole range of family law matters including divorce, financial settlements & cohabitation agreements. In addition to the Guildford office the firm is now also located in Basingstoke, Southampton, Portsmouth, Reading, Salisbury and Camberley.

We specialise in family law and we don’t do anything else. Whatever your situation and whatever the issue it will be familiar to us. Given our experience you can be confident that we have handled cases similar to your own.

Proactive Lawyers

As well as specialising in family law, all of our lawyers are themselves specialists either in child law or divorce and relationship breakdown. We realise that often cases require emergency action and we are always available and able to speedily respond to any urgent situations
