Arrangements for Children
Arrangements for children
There is no area in which it is more important to obtain the best possible specialist advice than in those issues relating to the upbringing of children. We understand the potential impact upon children of family separation and are able to advise not only on the law but also on the best and most sensitive approach.
There may be many different aspects of your child’s upbringing to consider ranging from the amount of time they spend with each parent to decisions concerning their schooling and perhaps the relocation of one parent either internationally or to another part of the country. We encourage where possible a conciliatory approach, working with family mediators and therapists where the parties are open to engaging in positive dialogue with each other. We assist with the preparation of Parenting Plans to help parents agree their future expectations of one another.
Sometimes, circumstances arise which require urgent steps to protect children – either from the risk of harm or from abduction to another country. These are areas in which we have the expertise to help on an emergency basis when required.
