Child Involvement

You want to be sure you’re getting the best legal support available when there is children in the relationship. If you and your former partner have children together, deciding what will happen to them is often one of the most challenging aspects of a divorce or separation.

This includes deciding where they will live. Along with what contact the non-resident parent will have with them. Furthermore what financial support will be given.

We can help you negotiate the details of a settlement voluntarily wherever possible. Or support you in taking legal action if this is required. Where you agree a plan for your children voluntarily, we can help you make this legally binding. A ‘consent order’ will provide certainty and security for you and your children.

You may find yourself needing to consult a family law expert for advice.
