The hardest part of separation or divorce is resolving the children’s care arrangements. If you have recently been through a divorce or are currently going through one, our child law specialists will work closely with you to find an arrangement which serves your child’s needs.
We always aim to resolve family disputes and issues of child custody after a divorce. Our goal is not to go to court and resolve these issues with both parties. In some cases, however, this is not possible. Our specialists aim to retain a positive and healthy relationship between the child and both of the parties. In the instance that matters can only be resolved in court, we work closely with experts to achieve an understanding of what is in the best interest of the child. This can take up to twelve months and can be sped up if both parties work together.
Wanting to move abroad after a divorce is quite common. If your family is not in the UK, you might feel lonely and isolated from your relatives and friends abroad. Many couples move in order to be together to new locations and when the relationship ends, you might have made a decision to go back to your old life. This could be a little complicated if children are involved. Both parents have parental responsibilities after the divorce and need to be on the same page with the move. If they can read an agreement and divide the time that the child spends with each one of them, then such an agreement can be reached without going to court.
In the case of not being able to reach such agreement, our family law experts in Wandsworth can assist by offering expert advice.
