Disputes and issues concerning children can be some of the most contentious and sensitive. Whether you are a parent, carer or other interested party, our expert team provides advice on all areas of law concerning children, including child maintenance contact arrangements, relocation applications and specific issues. Whilst we always encourage you to agree your own child arrangements, we recognise that this is not always possible. Consequently, our advice is always tailored to place the children’s interests first whilst also presenting your views clearly.

We can help you with:

Child Arrangement Orders

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to come to an agreement regarding the  arrangements for  your children, such as:

  • Agreeing on who your child / children should live with;
  • Agreeing when your child / children should see their other parent;
  • Agreeing on a specific issue regarding childcare, school places, medical or religious issues.

The legal options available through these Court Orders are:

You can apply to the Court for a Specific Issue Order to reach an agreement on any matters regarding Parental Responsibility, such as:

  • Which school your child will go to

  • The decision of whether religion should be part of your child’s upbringing
  • Whether your child can be taken to live abroad with the other parent
  • Changing a child’s surname.

  • preventing the child/children from permanently living abroad
  • preventing medical treatment
