Arrangements for Children

When a relationship breaks down and there are children involved, it can become stressful and overwhelming. Separation affects every child differently and our experienced lawyers are sensitive to the need to keep the children at the centre of any decision made.

Every family is different, so we take the time to understand what will work for yours. There is no standard answer to the ‘custody battle’, but every child’s needs should be taken into account and we can help you come to a practical and fair arrangement.

How can we help you?

We have a wealth of experience in cases involving serious disputes, domestic violence, parental alienation, safeguarding concerns and relocation away from the current home, whether abroad or in the UK.

You may have a more specific dispute about travelling with your children, where your child should go to school, changing a child’s name or agreeing medical treatment and we can advise you on how to reach a conclusion with the minimum of cost and stress.

Our expert family lawyers can help you with:

  • Child arrangements orders
  • Financial arrangements for children
  • Grandparents and family rights
  • Injunctions and specific issue orders
  • Parental responsibility
  • Parenting agreements
  • Relocating with children

Where necessary, we can also help with emergency applications where there are serious concerns about a child being abducted or harmed in some way.

We recognise how important it is to maintain stability and good relationships for children during difficult times, and we aim to help you resolve your issues as quickly as possible with minimum conflict. We will talk you through your options and discuss what will be the best way forward for you, whether that includes mediation, court proceedings, arbitration or written agreements.
