Jonathan Cunningham
Head of Family Law Department

Jonathan Cunningham qualified as a solicitor in 2001. He became a partner in Moseleys in 2004. Jonathan is a member of both the Law Society's Advanced Family Law Panel and the Law Society's Children panel.

Jonathan specialises in family law work including assisting clients with divorce; dissolution of civil partnerships; matrimonial finances; and domestic violence injunctions.

He has a particular interest in the law relating to children and often advises and assists parents and grandparents who are involved with disputes over the arrangements for the care of their children (previously known as contact and residence cases).

Jonathan advises and represents parents, grandparents and other relatives involved in care proceedings brought by the Local Authority. He is also able to assist clients, prior to care proceedings being issued, with "PLO" meetings where necessary.

He also assists people with making applications to the Court for Special Guardianship Orders - which can be necessary if someone other than the parents of a child, or children has the care of them.

Jonathan frequently attends Court for his clients and is a very experienced advocate.

Jonathan also assists clients with employment matters and civil litigation matters.
