Our experienced team

We provide advice and representation to all members of the family on a full range of issues relating to children. Disputes concerning children can present parents, family members and courts with some of the most challenging decisions of all. The Children Act 1989 is the main legislation which provides the law. Our experienced team of solicitors can help anyone who finds themselves in conflict about children. In situations where there are serious concerns about child’s immediate safety and welfare, we are able to act urgently to provide them with protection through court orders.

Areas of specialism:

  • Child Arrangements Order – who a child lives with and how much time they spend with the other parent including the type of contact
  • Preventing a parent from doing something – prohibited steps order
  • Requiring someone to do something – specific issue order
  • Legal rights and restricting those rights – parental responsibility
  • Children’s name – change of name
  • Children moving abroad or to another area of the country – international or national relocation

The welfare interest of your children must be paramount in any decisions, and if a dispute has to go to court this will be the guiding principle.
