Arrangements for Children

The welfare of children is often the most important concern for all of our clients.  We can help to advise you and find the best possible solution to protect your children’s well-being.

It may be that upon a relationship breakdown you are having difficulty in agreeing the most appropriate arrangements for your children.  There may be a disagreement as to where the children should live and how much time they should spend with the other parent.  There may also be other issues such as children’s schooling not being agreed upon.

We can offer advice to help you co-parent in these situations and try to encourage an amicable resolution between parties.  However, if it is clear that the issues cannot be dealt with without recourse to the court, then we can guide you through this process, whilst safeguarding the best interests of your children.

In some cases, you may consider there is a risk of the other parent absconding with the children of the family.  Where that is the case, we can offer emergency advice and representation.
