When a couple decides to divorce or separate, one of the most pressing concerns for parents is how their children will be affected. We understand the importance of your child’s welfare and will work hard to ensure their best interests are paramount when decisions are made.

It’s always best if arrangements for children can be agreed rather than being imposed by a judge. We recognise that resolving the arrangements for children can be a very emotional and difficult experience. Our lawyers have the skills and experience to guide you through all options and help you reach a solution that’s best for you and your children. We recognise that in some situations it may be necessary to issue an application at court to protect your children or to enable decisions to be made about where they live and how much time they will spend with each parent and possibly other relatives. All our lawyers have significant advocacy experience and knowledge of the court process to enable them to advise and assist when this is appropriate.

We are committed to providing our clients with a service that is highly personalised and tailored to your individual needs. We aim to provide you with pragmatic, affordable advice and assistance on a wide range of issues, including:

  • Disputes over arrangements for the children
  • Financial considerations, including issues surrounding maintenance, capital payments and housing needs
  • Paternity issues
  • Parental responsibility, especially concerning single fathers
  • Name changes, schooling and any other concerns you have about your child’s future.

We are friendly and approachable and will always work to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your children.
