Children Issues

Following the breakdown of a relationship it is sometimes difficult to agree the care for the children, if this happens we are here to support and assist you.
We can advise and represent you in a range of circumstances including:

Parental Responsibility
Parental Responsibility is the legal term used for governing who can make decisions regarding a child’s health, education, religion and all key aspects of their upbringing. Mothers are automatically granted parental responsibility, for fathers the law is a little more complex.
We can advise you on obtaining parental responsibility through a parental responsibility agreement or Court Order and exercising parental responsibility.

Child Arrangement Orders
As of 22nd April 2014 residence and contact Orders, which previously dealt with who a child lives with and what time was spent with the non-resident parent were abolished. Now the law provides for parents to apply for Child Arrangements Orders which look at the time a child spends with each parent. We are able to assist in negotiating and agreeing child care arrangements following separation. This includes putting forward proposals, improving communication between parents and drawing up agreements.
If necessary we can apply to Court for a Contact Order and represent you throughout the proceedings.

Specific Problems and Issues
If there is a specific issue or dispute which you and your ex partner cannot resolve please consult us. We are able to deal with a range of disputes including:

  • Applications to change a child’s school
  • Applications concerning moving out of the country
  • Disputes regarding choice of religion
  • Medical care and treatment
  • Applications to locate a child
