Arrangements for children

Where you have children, working out what your family looks like after a divorce can be difficult. Our team understand how complicated and sensitive these matters can be, so we will work closely with you to protect your children’s wellbeing while defending your rights as a parent.

Our family lawyers can assist with making arrangements for children that cover issues 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

We will seek to agree arrangements for children voluntarily wherever possible, using our skills in negotiation and mediation. However, our team is highly experienced in applications to family courts, so can help you secure a Child Arrangement Order from a court where required.

Divorce mediation

We recognise that most people would prefer to avoid court proceedings during divorce and agree the details of their separation privately. Mediation can be very effective for this, allowing divorcing couples to make financial settlements and arrangements.

During divorce mediation, you and your spouse with meet with a trained mediator who will act as a neutral third party to help you talk through the issues you need to resolve and agree solutions. Most couples require three-five sessions of mediation to achieve a settlement.

Our solicitors can work with you to identify all of the key issues you need to deal with if you chose to attend mediation (it is entirely voluntary) explain any relevant points of law and defuse any potential for conflict. This gives you the best chance of reaching a voluntary agreement for your divorce that works for everyone.
