The uncertainty of a child’s long term residential and contact arrangements can be very distressing for both parent and child. Specialist solicitors from our Family Law department are dealing with residence and contact disputes on a daily basis with the aim of progressing matters to a speedy and acceptable conclusion.
When couples separate they are free to make their own arrangements as to which parent their children should live with and how much time they should spend with the other parent. Unfortunately in many cases when a relationship turns acrimonious, parents are unable to come to a favourable arrangement. Some parents use mediation to reach agreement over their childrens’ residence and contact arrangements. In the event that the parents cannot agree or there are serious welfare concerns, that is when the Court becomes involved.
