Children and Custody
Do you have a child custody or access problem?
When the parents of children end their relationship, whether through divorce or separation, almost always the most difficult issue to resolve concerns the children. Arrangements for residence, contact and financial support can be resolved amicably, without the need to go to court, but sometimes, a court order is needed. As from April 2014, if the parents cannot agree on these things, there will need to be a “child arrangement order”, which is an order from the Court stipulating where and when the child or children should live and arrangements for contact. In this case, it is advisable to seek the advice of a barrister who can guide you through the process.
