Arrangements for children
Your children will always be your number one priority, no matter the circumstances. Unfortunately, if you have children, this can make a divorce even more complicated, as you and your former partner may have conflicting views about what arrangements need to be made.
We understand how difficult these situations can be and how important it is to protect your children’s wellbeing, so we will tailor our approach to your concerns and priorities.
Our family lawyers can assist with matters including:
- Where your children will live
- How much time they will spend with each parent
- Schooling and other key decisions about a child’s upbringing
- Changing children’s names following divorce
- Taking children abroad following divorce
Where possible, we will seek to make arrangements for children voluntarily. That being said, we are also highly experienced in applying to family courts for Child Arrangement Orders where necessary.
