Children Law

“Thank you to you for all your advice and guidance throughout this process. You’ve made it all a lot less painful than it could have been, and I really appreciate that.”

Client, 2023

Calm, discreet help

We know that a divorce or dissolution is rarely just a legal issue impacting two people. And for those with young families in particular, the stakes are incredibly high to ensure relationships are maintained. We’re here to share the burden and help you see the full picture.

When the separating couple are also parents, it’s imperative the process puts the children at the centre. Although the romantic relationship has come to an end, divorce is also a beginning - these two people are starting a new relationship as co-parents and we have a big role in making that new relationship a success.

We know all the different ways a divorce or dissolution can impact children and we take time to encourage those involved to openly talk about how they’re feeling to ensure a resolution is reached which works for everyone. We’re also experienced in supporting families of all shapes and sizes – no matter your personal circumstances, we can support you, and advise on the best way forward.  

We understand that at times decisions are urgent, and our specialist lawyers are experienced in providing clear, realistic and time-sensitive advice.

We’re here to support with any and all issues related to children in a family law context, such as:

  • Child arrangements
  • Disputes over issues such as which school should a child attend or the medical treatment they should receive
  • Relocation, where one parent wishes to move away with a child or where one parent is concerned a child might be taken out of the jurisdiction without their consent 

Our clients value the clear, balanced advice we provide, and we are committed to supporting parents to try to agree arrangements between themselves in the first instance. Where this is not possible we will support our clients with the most suitable process - such as Mediation, Arbitration, or Collaborative law.  If an agreement cannot be reached through any of these processes, depending on the facts of the case, it might be necessary to issue court proceedings.
