Children are at the centre of any family. The breakdown of a relationship can have profound effects on all family members, but particularly children. You may want advice about how to arrange your children’s time on separation (previously known as custody of children or residence), as well as other matters such as child maintenance , parental responsibility or schooling. As family lawyers, we give sensible pragmatic and sensitive legal advice about issues arising on separation that concern children.
As mediators, we support mediating parents in discussing arrangements for the family on separation. We assist mediating couples to discuss and explore agreeable solutions that work best for the children. We provide legal information but we do not give advice. We signpost to other professionals where desirable.
As collaborative lawyers, we work as a collaborative team with both clients and the other lawyer to discuss and agree the children’s arrangements.
