Welcome to HMD Family Law

We are a solicitors firm specialising in all aspects of Family Law and Mental Health, we understand that such issues can be stressful and emotional for you and we pride ourselves on our caring approach.

We have a wide range of experience in all aspects of family law and offer expert advice and representation in legal matters within all areas of family law including:

  • Divorce and financial settlements.
  • Children issues between parents.
  • Cohabitation and non married couples.
  • Care and supervision proceedings.
  • Adoption proceedings.
  • Special guardian orders.
  • Injunctions and domestic violence.
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Appointment of guardians.
  • Wills.
  • Change of name deeds.

We also have specialist expertise in care proceedings, including non-accidental injury, neglect, sexual and emotional abuse.


We charge a fixed fee of £160 plus VAT for an initial appointment to discuss the options available to you.

In addition to privately funded work we have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency. However, availability for this is limited due to changes that came in 2013. Legal Aid is available to parents who are involved in care proceeding issued by the local authority.  We also have a mental health contract with the Legal Aid Agency. Under this you may be entitled to free legal advice and assistance.

We have offices in both Cardiff and Porthcawl. Whilst we will endeavor to see you at short notice we do operate a strictly by appointment only policy.

Please note that due to the current situation with Covid-19 we ask that you do not attend the office without a prior appointment.
