If your marriage or cohabitation has broken down, we will work with you to achieve the best arrangements for your children, including their financial support. As far as possible, we will help you to reach an agreement with the other parent or we can refer you both to mediation. However, where an agreement cannot be reached we will advise on whether to apply to court, to make, for example, a Child Arrangements Order.
If your children are not living with you, we will try to ensure that you maintain a relationship with your children. If you were not married to the other parent of the child, we can help you obtain a Parental Responsibility Order giving you an involvement in the child’s education, health and welfare. If you have concerns whether the absent parent should have contact, then we can advise you further.
We can also help if you are not able to see your grandchildren.
We can help if you fear your children may be taken away from you to live abroad or you have fear of abduction.
If you have any other concerns about your children please do not hesitate to contact us.
