Children & Family Law

Supporting individuals and families with the specialist legal experience needed in complex cases involving children.

Separation, divorce or dissolution can be traumatic for everyone, but especially where children are involved or domestic abuse is prevalent. It is paramount therefore that these cases are handled with the utmost care, experience and sensitivity. 

Our specialist team support in a whole range of different situations relating to children, whether it’s securing parental rights, helping to agree how much time each child should spend time with or live with each parent, considering whether your child(ren) should relocate with you or their other parent, or attend a specific school or receive medical treatment or if financial provision for the child(ren) is required.

We support parents, grandparents, step parents and wider family members in family breakups with issues relating to children, in a sensitive and compassionate way.

We also specialise in relocation cases both internally within England and Wales and elsewhere in the world. We have supported a number of families moving to other jurisdictions with the support of the other parent, or with the court’s permission, as well as successfully defending requests made by other parents. We can work with you from the early stages of a potential relocation or in the event of an emergency court application being required.

We have specialist expertise and longstanding experience in this area. Our team are trusted to provide a constructive problem-solving approach and will ensure that the welfare of you and the child(ren) are considered when making any legal decision, no matter how small.

It can be stressful deciding what is best for the children. Our team will help with the difficult discussions and decisions, ensuring that the situation is as stress free as possible. We will build a trusted team for you and your family, including involving independent social workers, family therapists, child inclusive mediators and experts where necessary.

We can also advise upon safeguarding issues where there has been abuse and can help you to obtain the appropriate protective orders required to protect safety and welfare if necessary.

Every family is unique so we will tailor our approach to your needs and expectations to ensure the best outcome for all involved.
