Arrangements for children
If you have children, it can make divorce even more complicated. Our team understand 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
Wherever possible we will seek to agree arrangements for children voluntarily, but we are highly experienced in applying to family courts for Child Arrangement Orders where required.
Mediation can be very effective for making financial settlements and arrangements for children during divorce. The process involves you and your spouse meeting with a trained mediator who will act as a neutral third party to help you talk through the issues you are facing and agree positive solutions.
Our qualified mediator, Mikaela Rogerson, can work with you to ensure all of the key issues are identified, explain any relevant points of law and defuse any potential for conflict, helping you to reach a voluntary agreement that works for everyone.
