Arrangements for Children
For many separating couples the living arrangements for children can be difficult to sort out. You may have different views and different plans. There may be disagreements over where the children will live, issues over health or education decisions or circumstances where one parent wants to take the children abroad on a temporary or permanent basis.
Our team of family solicitors have years of experience in helping parents to:
Anticipate parenting problems and try to prevent them
Consider mediation as an alternative way of reaching agreement
Reach legal and practical agreements to determine the living arrangements and financial support for the children
Make applications to court for a judge to decide the arrangements for children, if no agreement can be reached.
Focus on the children’s needs and assist parents to change their relationship with each other from hostility to being able to work together for the sake of the children.
