Seema Kansal

I do lots of care and contact work which usually involves allegations and cross allegations of domestic abuse, violence and rape. I have represented both those accused of violence and the alleged victims. I therefore can see how to fight both sides and can anticipate what arguments will be made by the other side. 

I have represented clients who are, among many legal problems they are having:

  • looking to re-locate with their children abroad and where the other parent is resisting
  • wanting to enforce their contact orders where the other parents is being wholly unreasonable
  • non molestation orders and other injunctions
  • residence and contact orders
  • Prohibited Steps Order to prevent one parent taking the other out of the country
  • child abduction
  • forced Marriages - on behalf of parents and the child being forced
  • represent interested grandparents and other wider family members
  • divorce and money related matters;

My approach

I’m happy to have a 10 minute max telephone chat with you and then take it from there. Typically, if you want to take it forward, you will come into my chambers for a conference with your papers and I will give you my advice on the merits of your case and what you need to do. I will also quote you my fee for the work that is needed to be done. You can then formally instruct me to do the work.

I can converse in Hindi. Urdu and Punjabi with my clients.
