Our experienced and dedicated FAMILY team provides a bespoke service to guide and support clients skillfully though the challenges of family life
One of the most emotional and difficult aspects of family breakdown is deciding issues regarding the children.
Sorting this out amicably is important for the future well-being of the children. However, if parents cannot agree, we can assist with providing mediation and collaborative services or applications to the court to:
- Decide where the children should live
- Decide how much time the children should spend with the parent with whom they don’t predominantly live
- Resolve specific issues, for example relating to schooling or medical treatment
- Prevent an event involving the children from occurring, for example a child being removed from the country
With an increasingly international dimension to many families, we see more applications by one parent wishing to return home with the children after a separation. Where there is a dispute, the court must give permission for such a move. We have successfully made, and opposed, many such applications for clients whose former spouses/partners sought to move either internationally or domestically.
