What is child law?

Parenting can be challenging, even when a family is still living together. When the family separates it can feel almost impossible. Child arrangements can be one of the most common causes of conflict between separating couples. With emotions running high, putting aside all your relationship issues and focus on co-parenting after a split is easier said than done. Even so, the most important thing is to reach an agreement that respects the rights of all sides and puts the interests of the child first.

Specialist child law solicitors

Our family law team included a specialist family solicitor, an accredited specialist family mediator, child and child consultant who can help you come to a constructive agreement. They can also advise on all aspects of mediation or alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in some of the more complex cases.

We find that with an empathetic approach and reasoned advice, many cases are capable of agreement that might otherwise have gone to court. However, if the worst comes to the worst and court proceedings are unavoidable, our child law solicitors can represent you to protect your best interests – and those of the child.
