Our Family Law Team believe that when a couple separate it should have minimum impact on any child involved and that parents who separate should work together to co-parent their child. A child has a right to have contact with their parents, not the other way around.

Applications to Court are now called Child Arrangement Orders but were previously referred to as Custody/Residence or Visitation/Contact.

If an application has to be made to court because negotiations/mediation/collaborative law has failed then the court will ensure that any order made is in the best interests of the child.

Our Family Law Team is sympathetic to the ethos of Resolution, an organisation which promotes dealing with family law matters in a non-confrontational way. We believe that an agreement is more likely to be followed if the parties worked together to reach it, rather than it being forced on them by the court.
