Child Disputes

Wherever possible we refer child disputes to mediation. Where that is not possible or inappropriate, we try to effect an agreement, even if this still requires a court order by consent to give clarity for the parties' and their children.

Case Study

Our client the mother wished to move nearer her family with the children, which the father strongly opposed. He was not able to offer care for the children himself save at weekends and holidays and wished to place the children with a nanny while he had them 50% of the time. The court accepted our submission that the children should not lose time with their mother to be placed with a third party and the mother succeeded in her application to move out of the area.
