Putting children first

When you are embroiled in a break up dealing with issues relating to your children can seem impossible. If at all possible it is best for you to be able to reach an agreement about where and with which parent the children will live and how much time they are to spend with the other parent. I can help you throughout the process of negotiation, and if it comes down to it, with making an application to the court. I have excellent experience in helping clients get the outcome they need from child arrangement negotiations and can act tactfully to preserve relationships where required.

  • the ascertainable wishes and feelings of the child
  • any physical, emotional and educational needs
