Helping People Access Justice in
Family Cases 

Welcome to Legal First Aid. Following major cuts to legal aid mean that many people are left navigating the legal system on their own. If you need help, support or assistance, I specialise in affordable legal help with child matters, divorce proceedings and domestic abuse. 

My name is Caroline Edwards. I am a registered family law paralegal with over 25 years of experience working in the legal profession. I have an understanding of the court system and should you require specialist assistance, I can signpost you to the correct professional who can help you.

My Services


Paralegal in Manchester giving advice to young couple


Children Matters

I offer expert support with a variety of child matters including applications for child arrangement orders. Child issues can be emotional and difficult, but I have empathy towards such sensitive matters and will endeavour to reach the best possible outcome for all involved.

Domestic Abuse

If you have been or are in an abusive relationship, I will assess your eligibility for legal aid. If you are eligible, I will refer you to a choice of solicitors with a legal aid contract who will be able to help you further.

If you are not eligible, I can apply for a non-molestation order and/or occupation order on your behalf. If this is the case, I will discuss matters in full with you at that point.

Separation and Divorce

If you wish to have advice in relation to commencing divorce proceedings, we can discuss the best options available to your particular circumstances.  Our aim is to keep matters between the parties as amicable as possible.
