Children and Family Law

Family lawyers can advise you as to the emotional and stressful issues relating to children that can arise on divorce and separation.

It is always preferable for parents to reach an agreement in relation to their children between themselves. Family Lawyers can advise you as to the options available to you as a parent and will attempt to resolve any contested issues raised in relation to the children, whether they relate to residence (i.e. custody), contact, prohibited steps or other specific issues. Family Lawyers will always advise you that the welfare of the children must remain the paramount consideration, and Court action should generally only be used if absolutely necessary.

Family lawyers strive to deal with children issues in a non-confrontational and conciliatory manner. They are also experienced in advising clients as to child maintenance and the involvement of the Child Support Agency.

If you need the help of a family lawyer, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left.
