About Hampshire Family Legal Solutions

The HFLS model has been designed to help couples separate with dignity and without using the court process. The model focuses upon solutions and results tailored to the family by identifying common goals and working as a professional team to ensure a fair and cost-effective outcome is achieved.

The cornerstone of the model is professional teamwork and ensures that you both have expert advice in all three core areas: legal, emotional and financial. The inclusion of neutrals, family consultants and financial consultants, is a new and much more successful way of conducting any of the services we offer.

Any children of the family will always be considered first and foremost, and their needs will be at the centre of any decisions to be made.


Further Information


Information Meeting / Call

The first step is to speak in person or on the telephone to any of our members for an information meeting. There is no charge for this meeting and the meeting is likely to last between 20-30 minutes. It is helpful for the couple to attend together so you both have the same information at the outset, although if you have separate meetings with different members it still works well under the HFLS model.

Foundation Meeting

The second step is to attend a foundation meeting. There is a fixed shared cost of £1,000 + VAT (total £1,200) for this meeting. You will both meet with a neutral family consultant, a neutral financial consultant and with your own independent lawyer. All 4 professionals in the team will take the time to understand what is important for you both individually and for your family as a whole. We will identify common goals and areas of agreement. We will also identify areas where work is required to help you reach agreement. You are not under any obligation, nor tied into any process, simply by attending a foundation meeting.


After the foundation meeting your professional team will design a bespoke, value for money package of services to help you negotiate and agree all matters. A proposal will be drafted for you both to consider that will be clear on costs and timescales.

This package may include a combination of the Collaborative Process, Mediation, Arbitration, Early Neutral Evaluation and/or Child Inclusive Mediation – please see the ‘services’ pages for more information about our offering.

Next Steps

Once you have accepted and signed your proposal letter you will start work with the professional team selected specifically for your needs.
