Resettlements Grants

Resettlement Grants

One of the great attractions of a Forces career is that (along with travel, adventure, comradeship and everything else) it offers outstanding opportunities to gain skills and qualifications.

While your military CV can be your ticket to a good civilian job, you might decide to use your training and experience to set up in business yourself when you leave. Your resettlement grant, which you receive if you’ve served at least 12 years, can provide the cash you need to get started – but only after taking proper professional advice.

At Forces Law, we’ve worked with people from across the ranks in all three services, helping them make informed decisions about setting up and running their new civilian business. Many of our lawyers are former Service people themselves, so have a unique understanding of the risks and rewards.

Whatever kind of business you’re planning, we can advise on everything from company structure, customer and supplier contracts and employing staff to acquiring premises and dealing with bad debts.

As a first step, you can book a FREE 30-minute interview to talk through your ideas and options, and get some initial advice from one of our experienced lawyers. Whether you’re still serving, preparing to leave, or you’ve already received your resettlement grant, please call our helpline on 0239 262 6888 or email to find out more.

What our clients say

Thank you for everything you have done!! You have been amazing from start to finish, I just wish I had come to you in the first place as my previous solicitor didn’t even know there were special rules for Armed Forces wives. Biscoes Solicitors.

(Bolt Burdon Kemp.) You have always been professional, meticulous, understanding, adaptable and really gone up and above in all aspect of our case and customer care. Not once during your representation have we had to worry or question your ability, directions, guidance or choice of experts or legal representation, which alleviates some of the worry and burden that litigation brings.

Sgt RLC, Military claims client.

(Wace Morgan Solicitors LLP) Very compassionate, caring and professional service. Very hard to improve on 100%. Good standard of service.

Do not hesitate to use Wolferstans as your solicitors. I have used them now on two occasions and they are quite simply the very best there is. Helpful, friendly, efficient but above all honest with you from start to finish. My most recent case was a triumph and that was down to their dedication and professional handling of the case. In short they saved me my future and I will be eternally grateful.

Mr Hall, Plymouth.
