HTML Question

How do I vertically align a div inside of another div?

I've looked at other posts but they aren't working for me. My website (http://www.jacksewell.uk/) has a modal that fades in when you click the "Hire Me" button. Currently its not centred vertically but it is centred horizontally. I would like the modal to be centred both horizontally and vertically. Any help?
Thanks :D

Here the markup and CSS (Sass) for the modal:


<!-- The Modal -->
<div id="myModal" class="modal">

<!-- Modal content -->
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<span class="close">×</span>
<h2>Ready to start your next project?</h2>
<div class="modal-body">
<form action="form_submit.php">
<span id="name">Name: </span><br><input type="text" name="client-name">
<span id="company">Company : </span><br><input type="text" name="company-name">
<span>Service: </span><br><select name="Service">
<option value="Website">Website Devlelopemnt</option>
<option value="Design">Design related tasks</option>
<option value="SEO">SEO Related tasks</option>
<option value="All">Full Package (Website designed & developed with SEO)</option>
<span id="info">Extra Detail : </span>
<textarea rows="4" cols="50">Please add more detail about what you are looking for.
<input type="submit">

This will do the trick, hope this helps!
