  Mark S about McKenzie Friend Dan Wilson

So far Dan has proven to be an absolute God-send to me. His experience of the system, his clarity of speech, his organisation and preparedness, and the fact that he has been through a similar situation to mine make him a formidable ally. He has a very reassuring presence and a lot of humanity about him. Easily as intelligent as any barrister I've met with the added bonus of having been where I am. If this sounds a bit gushing then so be it, but that's how it is.

  Boris K about McKenzie Friend Dan Wilson

Original Edited due to length

Despite being a lawyer by profession, I have no previous experience in the family court. Dan Wilson has been fantastic. My natural instincts were to defend myself and prove every single allegation made by the mother to be false. After reading my allegations against the mother and my reply to the mother's allegations, Dan simply advised that I withdraw my allegations and avoid giving the mother's allegations credibility by defending each and every single one. Dan pointed out that best thing I could do was to reduce conflict and he pointed out that dealing with allegations in an adversarial way only increases conflict. I must say that it felt like a leap of faith withdrawing my allegations and only focusing on some of the mother's allegations ---- and it paid off, ---- it was decided no finding of fact hearing was necessary,'

I am very pleased with the support and 'advice' given by Dan. I plan to continue to use his services. -----I would not hesitate to recommend Dan to the next passenger on the family court train. Thank you Dan.

  Avri about Sundeep Gill McKenzie Friend

I strongly endorse McKenzie Friend, Sundeep Gill. He helped me through the toughest time of my life going through family court.

Whereas, with a solicitor or barrister, you receive the necessary support, with Sundeep I received empathetic and compassionate support and advice. He was accessible throughout the week and at weekends when emergencies or emotional lows struck.

Sundeep learned my case like the back of his hands, and assisted me where needed including looking at the draft orders and advice on rectifying them. I felt that my children was his primary concern. I was happy to hear if he disagreed with my views, helping me stay child focused and not get embroiled in a battle, which can be all to easy to do. I know for a fact you don’t get this with a solicitor.

I could not have been more satisfied. Sundeep exhibits utmost professionalism, great oral and written communication skills, demonstrating an extensive understanding of family law and a keen awareness of the potential tactics employed by the opposing legal team.

  Louise B about McKenzie Friend Angela Kanwar

For the last 2 years I have felt utterly hopeless, I have felt that I had no where to turn to support. I paid a lot of money for a solictor who was great. But I still felt so anxious and like there was no way out. Angeli had been supporting me for less than a month and already I have a clear plan, and every time I get a official email which would normally send me in to panic attacks and anxiety Angeli has made a call to me even if that has been a hour or 3 minutes and it has taken that all away. She is so professional and has a possitive, but factual outlook. Her support with my Dv has made the situation so much better for me and my child. And I can't thank her enough. There is hope even when it feels like there is no way out!

  Lucy E about McKenzie Friend Michelle

Michelle helped read my position statement and spoke with me before my first hearing with my ex partner . In this hearing she made me feel much more able to deal with the situation, explained the process , dealt with my conflicting emotions and totally understood me where others would not , had they not experienced it for themselves . A court date is highly upsetting , stressful and unknown to most of us . Michelle gave me the strength to go ahead and achieve my desired outcome , to protect myself , my family and my property for the future , I would not hesitate again to ask her for her amazing assistance . She is a diamond in a sea of depression , sadness , unhappiness and worry . She’s a true angel , ultimate professional in her field and made the process as good as it could be for me.

  Kamrul H about Sundeep Gill McKenzie Friend

What a superstar. From the get go you could tell Sundeep knew what he was talking about, he made me look at things from a more legal standpoint and helped me prepare documents for my next hearing. I am so glad I reached out to Phil and his team as a result of watching a video on his page which was exactly what was happening to me. Sundeep listened, helped me focus and prepare a great statement and I look forward to using him going forward until my case comes to a conclusion. Thank you Sundeep, I really appreciate it. Props to you and the team Phil, you are doing a fantastic job for people like me who cannot afford legal representation.

  Becci about McKenzie Friend Gemma

I honestly can not recommend Gemma enough. She was able to fit us in last minute to assist with a final hearing in a child matter. We were up against a barrister for the other side and still came out with almost everything we wanted! Everything went smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for her. She always responds to emails and texts as soon as she can. And she just makes you feel so at ease. It still feels unreal that it’s over and it’s thanks to Gemma’s amazing professional support! It is a fraction of what we had already had to spend on solicitors and we got more achieved with her!

  Carl about McKenzie Friend Dave Barma

I reached out to Dave seeking assistance with my Child Arrangements case, and from our initial interactions, I've been truly impressed. Dave's approachability, politeness, and extensive knowledge in this field have made our communication seamless. He articulates complex legal concepts in a manner that's easily understandable, demonstrating both expertise and effective communication skills.

Dave's punctuality and efficiency have been noteworthy; he's consistently been there exactly when needed, ensuring our progress has been both timely and thorough. As we move towards the stage of preparing court statements, I have full confidence that his work will be of the highest standard.

In summary, my experience with Dave Barma has been nothing short of exceptional thus far, and I anticipate this level of professionalism and support will persist as we navigate through the remaining stages of this process.

Michelle has been amazing offering guidance and support through a stressful time. Knowing how and when to deal with solicitors who are trying to antagonise the situation has been priceless. Michelle has also pointed me in direction of additional financial support available to myself and family that was previously unaware of. After spending 1000s on solicitors initially I never felt like myself and daughters welfare was being supported holistically as it is now with Michelle. Can highly recommend to others!

  David W about McKenzie Friend Dave Barma

I think what is really vitally important is to feel that someone is actually listening to you and taking into account the impact any situation could be having on your own mental health and how life changing things can be. I am a person and wish to be treated as a person with feelings, emotions, fears etc. and I have to say that Dave Barma was instantly supportive and tuned into all those mixed emotions and feelings I was having due to the impact of what is happening in my life. It is also nice to have someone who is trying to be much more straight forward and honest about the processes and how things can take much longer than indicated. I feel I have someone who is going to keep me informed of every stage and just much calmer about everything. Dave is very approachable and everything is based on what help and support I need and at a time convenient to both of us but with huge flexibility. I feel I am now on a journey with someone who intends to be there with me, rather than feeling I am all on my own and I have no way of controlling any of that said journey. Thank you.

Position Statement for Child arrangements court hearing

I needed help with writing a good position statement as decided to self represent due to wasting so much money on solicitors and barristers during my case. I contacted Dave Barma after initially seeing the YouTube video for McKenzie Friends. The service was excellent, very good communication, speedy response and the charges were made clear upfront and I think they are very reasonable compared to solicitors and barristers. I was able to write a very good position statement with help from Dave.

  Scott J about McKenzie Friend David BarmaDave Barma has been fantastic throughout my case, which is still ongoing. Dave's support and guidance has allowed me to progress through each phase knowing that I am being safeguarded by his court knowledge. Unfortunately, some organisations that work alongside the courts (Cafcass) do not have the fathers best interests at heart, therefore, having Dave around has safeguarded me and my case. Without this knowledge I feel my case would not be as strong as it is now. In addition, Dave is very thorough with his work and is very honest..

  Amanda H About McKenzie Friend Safina Bibi

Dear Safina.
I’m writing to you to give my thanks.
Your advice has directed me to include very valuable details regarding my financial resolution case whilst self representing. It enabled me to include crucial details within my S25 statement which was not available to me in my own research.
You have th actual “real life”experience in this area which is something I found very helpful indeed.
I could come to you with my research and you were able to give me you professional clarity on my work which provided me with the confidence and reassurance that I had prepared as fully as I could myself.
Self representation is extremely traumatic and you have an excellent balance of compassion and understanding that is personal and professional, something so necessary in those times of
worry and uncertainty.
You have always been there if I needed you for anything and you are always reliable. I person I would recommend to anybody who is facing uncertainty and needs a good knowledgeable & savvy person to help them.

  Lauren about McKenzie Friend Dave Barma

Honestly can't thank Dave enough for his help and professional guidance. I would have struggled to fight for my children if it wasn't for him guiding me through and telling me how to go about things. I've never had to deal with anything like this before and he has just put me at ease with it all and I feel a lot more confident going forward. I would have really struggled to pay solicitors fees but Dave's fees are a lot less and he only charges me for things that are needed. I wouldn't go with anyone else now. Thank you so much

  Becky W about McKenzie Friend Lynne James

What can I say. You will never get the same support from a solicitor!

The emotional support and strength that Lynne gave me was out of this world. I would never, as a victim of domestic abuse, have had the strength to represent myself in three hearings whist my ex-husband had a barrister represent him at all three, without the support of Lynne.

Lynne was able to give me up to date information about the case. She meticulously helped me scrutinise all the evidence, discrepancies, and paperwork that I had to go through.

I wouldn’t have been able to get through the case without Lynne and the emotional support she gave me. Having the professional support AND emotional support is something that I never thought I would be able to get. The endless cups of tea and biscuits and cuddles from Daisy (Lynne’s dog) were a great help!

Not only did Lynne help me "get the job done" but she made me believe in myself. During the very many moments when it was hard and I was upset and ready to give up, she was there offering support and encouragement.

On top of all that, she helped me achieve an amazing financial outcome; I walked away with 60% more than my ex-husband offered in his proposal!

Thank you, Lynne, not only have I finally escaped an abuse marriage/divorce. I can move on and have made a friend for life.

  Case Review with Philip Kedge

Phil offered some very pragmatic and sensible advice, much of which I felt my solicitor should have (but hasn't so far) offered me. It was exactly the kind of information that I needed to feel empowered and I feel more confident that I will be able to regain some direction in a divorce process which otherwise feels felt like it is wandering aimlessly along.

  Sylwia About about McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Phil was really helpful from start, definitely has in depth understanding about how the family court operates. A few times I had some last minute emergency submissions and I always felt his support; he even helped on a weekend with a really short notice. One thing I really have to highlight is Phil's honesty, which was sometimes harsh, but that was what prepared me for various potentialities, and prevented from wasting my time on aspects that courts are absolutely not interested about. NB. Had a different independent Mc Kenzie friend initially and he was not even half as good as Phil plus not transparent about the costs, let me down several times with deadlines, not easily accessible for days. So if I ever have to go to court again, I will go straight to Phil. Highly recommended

I can’t put into words how much ?Lynne has helped me and what an amazing support she has been for me when going to court for financial remedies .

Lynne is well informed and knowledgeable about everything that I needed to do for my divorce, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her.

On days when I felt I couldn’t continue the battle, Lynne was always there with her caring and supportive help encouraging me to keep going.

My case is still ongoing but I believe with Lynne’s help I will get a great result.

  Hayley T about McKenzie Friend Michelle

I simply could not of coped without Michelle’s endless support through the latter stages of my divorce and Child Arrangement Order. My anxiety was so high approaching court deadlines and opening up solicitors letters but Michelle stepped in every time,keeping me calm, keeping me informed and well advised. She sent endless messages to keep me buoyant and reassure me that I can do this without expensive solicitors. And she was right. I did cope, with her help and expertise but most importantly, the warmth that I needed at a time when I felt the most vulnerable and alone. Solicitors bills have left me in debt but without Michelle I would of been a further 25K in debt as well. I can’t thank her enough and would urge you to contact Michelle if you are struggling with divorce and children related issues.
Michelle is knowledgeable, capable and calm and sat through hearings with me quietly giving me advise and prompts in my earpiece during the hearings. I can’t express enough how much this helped and I simply could not of done this without her.
She read through complicated forms and interpretated them to me and wrote out superb statements without causing aggression and unnecessary conflict.
I wholly believe going through solicitors will cause more harm, money and heartache and wished I had of used Michelle earlier on in the process.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Michelle.
I have made a forever friend.

I thought this module was excellent. The case was explained very thoroughly and is probably very typical of many cases in the courts so it was really helpful to see how it progressed.

It might be useful to add as an additional section, some other common scenarios. Not in the detail that was done with the other case but just some common features.

  TC about McKenzie McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

I have read a lot on how to go through family court without a solicitor, but it was overwhelming at times and I was not feeling confident as a litigant in person. And having the support and mentoring of a McKenzie Friend before and during the hearing was invaluable. It gave me the confidence I needed to face the family court, and it lead to a great outcome. My McKenzie Friend helped me keep calm and remain child-oriented throughout the process. I hope not to go through family court ever again, but if I do so, it will certainly be with a McKenzie Friend by my side.

It's important to take it slow and avoid angry feelings that could impair a coherent application to the courts.

  Mark about McKenzie McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

After struggling with a divorce which wasnt easy then after I though the dust had settled I had to deal with an impending custody court case. I found Phil's videos on YouTube to immensly helpful and were exactly what I was looking for in terms of learning what the process involved, how it all works and how to deal with it. I started to understand a lot more and it opened my eyes to a process that was unknown and frankly daunting. I was amazed and grateful to be able to book a session with Phil and speak personally about my case and concerns I had. I found Phil to be easy to relate to having going though this process himself. I was able to face a meeting with CAFCAS with the right mindset and be able to communicate effectively what I needed to. I just want to thank Phil for taking the time to listen and help me out.

I highly recommend Ms. Safina Bibi who extended her services as a McKenzie friend in my CAO case in the UK family court . I approached her from Dubai for my case in the UK family courts for Child Arrangement orders. I wasn’t happy with my solicitors and of course was scared out of my mind as the case had international factors to it. Ms. Safina eased my mind about the whole process and made me comfortable about the case . Definitely great professionalism. I am also very happy with the deal I got. She is affordable and advise you to the point which can at times turn the tables in the court. Her professional work on my case have exceeded my expectations. At any time I needed her for advise she was always available to help quickly and a high level of professionalism despite the fact that I am residing in a different jusrisdiction and time difference.

Unbelievable Phil. Module 1 and 2 have been brilliant. This is easily the best value for money I have spent on a course! I have learnt so much about the court process and life skills to reduce conflict.

The most important thing I have learnt is how easy a parent can cause children harm if they do not get on. Every parent should avoid hate and look for the light...

Well done Phil you have produced an exceptional training package and should be very proud of what you have done.

I feel empowered to tackle the court process without a Solicitor and I have not even finished the course yet!! Chris

I found the training so far excellent. I am currently waiting to go to a Fact finding session possibly next month and so it has been invaluable in giving me an insight as what to expect. I think the recent court judgement of giving statements more weight will be of greater use.

The information provided has been excellent, i have thoroughtly enjoyed with the training and engaged with it. The documents and information attached with each module has been perfect to help with learning and that applies throughout the training.

I dont have anything negative to say and feel that you are doing a brilliant job and the money has been well worth the knowledge and insight to the court process with your experience. Zishan

  Sarah N about McKenzie Friend Julie Edwards

I am very happy with all the support Julie has given me. With emails phone calls text messages. She took my case on a couple of days before I had to summit documents for finances. I wished I had known about mckenzie friends sooner. Julie has been fab. I cant fault any of her work she has done for me. She is a lovely caring person and she really does deserve the credit she gets. It is a relief knowing ive got her support with my court case for my family home. And the service is alot cheaper than a solicitor and she is always at the end of the telephone or email. I cant thank Julie enough for the work she has done for me. And im feeling positive for the outcome. So a big thank you for your service you offer and a big thank you to Julie x

Phil cuts through the theatrics, smoke and mirrors of the family court system and gets straight to the point. I would feel very safe with my case in his hands - just wish I'd meet him sooner!

  Susan about McKenzie McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

I contacted Phil as I was in great need of direction and support. It was really east to make an initial appointment via the website and when I spoke to Phil I was very relieved. He helped me gain some perspective on my situation and was really easy to talk to. The first appointment was free. I would strongly recommend that anyone experiencing a divorce and or child care dispute should speak to Phil

  Karen about McKenzie McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

I have had an hour with Phillip and he really has turned things around for me. I decided to not to submit my scotch schedule of allegations . Phillip helped me to understand that I need to be the grow up and to try to put an end to the war for my child’s sake . I feel a lot more comfortable with the process, it will never be easy but with a McKenzie friend I feel I can get through this journey . I would def recommend a discussion with Phillip to see how he can help you.
Thank you

Thank you so much the service has been amazing

  Jonathan about McKenzie McKenzie Friend Phil Kedge

Nothing prepares you for this – initial conversations with lawyers and barristers were expensive and confusing. Costs were out of control on top of the emotional distress of having unpredictable contact with my child.

What Phil provided was solid, clear advice and reassurance. For the first time I felt anchored and had a clearer sense of where things were likely to go. Of course you get down, but throughout Phil’s expertise and clarity was excellent and made a big difference to my well being.

During the court processes which were on line and in person Phil was clear so that I was able to conduct myself effectively and calmly – having Phil by my side massively helped me get the outcome which we eventually got. You don’t need lawyers and barristers whose role is by nature adversarial – you need calm, authoritative advice that is child centric and authoritative.

Phil’s availability throughout has been important and his support re the emotional impact was important.

A huge thanks from me and my child. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

  Cat K about McKenzie Friend Julie Edwards

Julie has been an incredible support to me in my current circumstances over the past twelve months. Her knowledge of the family courts and proceedings has been invaluable. With limited funds to have a solicitor or barrister at all times, the Mckenzie Network is a brilliant set up for those who cannot afford the costly legal fees but need some support, guidance and help for proceedings. Julie has become a very good friend throughout this process and has been caring and compassionate but also encouraging me to use my voice and stand up for myself. Thank you!

  Jean P about McKenzie Friend Julie Edwards

Retired Family Court Magistrate

Julie gave me a reality check that helped me find clarity in what's happening. It's difficult to understand the court process because it doesn't work based on what we're used to in daily reality. So, having someone explain things to you makes a big difference.

Now, I have a better understanding of how I need to proceed. A heavy load has been lifted off my chest thanks to Julie's insights. Even though I still have a long way to go, I'm confident that I'll achieve the outcome that's best for the children.
