Children

We aim to help parents whose relationships have ended to achieve practical workable solutions to children’s issues

Parents have to try to achieve workable arrangements for most aspects of their children’s upbringing with the children’s best interest at the forefront of their minds to minimise the effect of the separation of their parents.  We advocate mediation or the collaborative approach where possible to achieve resolution but are experienced and skilled in pursuing court applications particularly in emergency situations.

We can advise on the following matters:

  • Residence and contact – where and with whom the children will live and the arrangements for the absent parent to
    see the children.
  • Specific issues – arrangements for schooling,
    holidays, religion etc.
  • Change of name
  • Internal and external relocation
  • Applications on behalf of grandparents
  • Paternity Disputes
  • Parental Responsibility Agreements
