Child Arrangements

When dealing with the practical considerations during a divorce or separation we will always keep in mind your children’s physical and emotional wellbeing; your priorities are our priorities.

Our family law solicitors are experienced with helping families and parents to make arrangements for children following divorce or separation. We make certain all parties involved are aware of their legal rights as well as responsibilities throughout the process and never lose sight of you or your children’s needs.

We understand when going through a breakdown of a relationship your children’s practical needs as well as emotional ones needs will be your main concern. Our solicitors will be able to help you focus on the best practical solutions for your circumstances. We’ll explain what arrangements will need to be considered and help prepare accordingly for a happier  and stable future for both you and your children.

When filing for a divorce the courts will require a Statement of Arrangements form to be completed, this sets out the arrangements for how your children will be cared for. We will guide you through the form and what the courts expect, as well as advising what options you have and help put together the necessary costs.
