Children Law

Children can often be unintentionally caught in the middle of a dispute when a relationship breaks down. When emotions are heightened between adults it is often the children who suffer.

We understand that the child’s welfare is the paramount consideration in any separation or divorce and it is the child’s wishes and feelings that should have the biggest impact on any dispute. Where the adults have decided to separate they still have a responsibility to ensure they are doing what is best for their children.

In situations where emotions run high, and you simply cannot resolve matters between yourselves, our solicitors will be there to assist. We can help you reach agreement about practical matters such as with whom the children will live and how much time they will spend with other family members/carers.

Being involved in a family case can be very daunting and emotional and you need the chance to build a rapport with the person in whom you are placing your trust. We give you that time and will, whenever possible, represent you in Court to ensure your affairs are in hands that you have confidence in.

You can be reassured by the fact that we have Law Society accredited specialists in Children Law. Accredited members must prove they have, and will maintain, a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of children law and the representation of children.
