Child Matters

The security and wellbeing of your children can be the biggest concern for you as a parent during a divorce or separation. Where they will live, how you will support them, securing an agreeable contact arrangement and the impact this will have on them are some of the many worries and concerns you will have. We will take you through each step of the process giving you the support and reassurance to guide you in the right direction.

Agreeing on your children’s living arrangements

Contact and Residence Orders no longer exist. The court prefers for the children’s living and contact arrangements to be settled between you and your spouse or partner. It is our absolute priority to work with you to establish and agree the most suitable outcome for you and your children. If this cannot be agreed by you and your spouse or partner and court proceedings are necessary, we will explain the Child Arrangement Orders that are available to you.

‘In the child’s best interest’

This term is used in court when a number of factors are taken into account to establish where the children should live, what the access arrangement should be and any financial agreements. We will explain exactly how the court interprets this in practise.
