Divorce and Children

Getting divorced can be one of the toughest decisions to make

Deciding to get divorced can be one of the toughest decisions to make and this is particularly true when there are children involved. The decision will mean a huge upheaval for the whole family and will take its toll on everyone. Our expert Solicitors can offer initial legal advice about children in divorce or legal separation.

If you are getting a divorce or facing legal separation, we can provide the support and help that you and your children need to help you make the right decisions and find a way forward.

We can help you to arrange child custody arrangements to suit the family now and in the future including:

  • Where the children should live (Which parent)
  • Who the children can see and visit
  • Change of names / practical issues
  • Which school/college etc the children should attend

It is clearly important to keep disruption to a minimum (wherever possible) when going through a divorce process. This will not be easy in most circumstances, but there are things you can do to try to minimise the disruption between both parties and try to make the process as painless as it can be.

We can provide you with the right legal advice about parental responsibility and how to get it. We can also help you make arrangements for the children for example, getting a Child Arrangement order to assist with contact or residency issues.

Our family law solicitors are specialists in resolving child custody disputes in divorce and legal separation and can help you reach a fair and affordable outcome.

We are members of Resolution which means that we are committed to resolving disputes in a non-confrontational way. We are obliged to give you information and options relating to counselling, family therapy, medication etc.

We can give you information about the benefits of this approach and how this can help keep costs to a minimum.
