Resolving the children’s care arrangements are the most dramatic part of a separation or divorce and vary from case to case. If your relationship has broken down we will work with you to achieve the best arrangements for your children.
Whether you are currently going through a divorce or separation, or if you have recently been separated, our team of child specialists will work with you to find an arrangement which serves your child’s needs best.
We will always aim to resolve family disputes and matters of child custody (now called “child arrangements”) away from the court. Such matters can sometimes take over one year to resolve, not to mention the costs involved. In most circumstances, we work in a way that children maintain a healthy and positive relationship with both parents. We recognise that the child can only be helped with both parents working together. We initially encourage parents to agree matters through mediation or collaboration as this is the very best way forward in any child dispute.
In exceptional instances where the matter can only be resolved in court, we work with a field of experts to achieve an understanding that works in your child’s best interest. This process can take up to twelve months and can be sped up if both parents are willing to work together.
