When your relationship with the other parent is over, it is all the more important to ensure your children know your love for them will not falter. Establishing arrangements for both parents to spend time with the children, in a safe environment consistent with their best interests, is the priority upon separation.
We advise you on the appropriate arrangements for your family and help you with negotiation. A Parenting Plan is a useful starting point for your discussions and a beneficial tool in mediation.
If absolutely necessary, either parent can apply to the court for a Child Arrangements Order or Parental Responsibility Order. We can help you with every stage of the court process.
Child Arrangements Orders replaced residence and contact orders, which replaced custody and access orders.
