Working out what is best for the children when a relationship or marriage ends can be extremely difficult for all parties involved.
Key decisions may have to be made about where the children live, how much time they should spend with each parent, what contact they should have with wider family such as grandparents, which school they should attend and whether they should travel internationally to particular countries or move permanently abroad.
Matters may be complicated further if a child has specific needs or a parent has existing issues which may result in supervised or limited time with the children. Any decisions made may need to be revisited on a regular basis as the children grow up and their needs evolve.
If a child is removed from your care and taken abroad without your permission this can be unlawful and requires urgent action to ensure the safe and prompt return of the child.
We are well positioned to advise you on the best options for your children’s particular circumstances. Every family is unique: each requires bespoke arrangements to ensure that the children’s best interests are promoted, their well-being is considered and their various needs are met.
We are experienced in all methods of resolving issues relating to children, and well versed in resolving those issues without court proceedings. We can deal with those situations where the relationship has broken down completely and a judge is appointed to make the difficult decisions. Our team are on hand to advise you and steer you to achieve the best possible outcome for your children.
