Children Matters

A breakdown in any relationship is an emotional and distressing time. When there are children of the relationship the breakdown can be even more upsetting and anxious.

If future arrangements for the care of the children cannot be agreed following separation it may be necessary to visit a Solicitor for advice.

We believe a sensible, consilatory and sympathetic approach will often resolve these emotive issues via negotiation. Mediation is also an option. Court action should be the last resort but if it is a necessary option then we can advise and guide you through the process.

Keeping the lines of communication open in any such disagreement is always a key.

In certain complex matters dependent upon the age of the child and the issues involved, the child may be made a party to any Court case with the Court’s permission and have representation via the children’s Guardian and/or Solicitor to ensure therefore that it is heard.

Step-Parents may bring the same application as a biological parent following the breakdown of a relationship.

Non-biological partners are able to seek Court assistance on matters relating to children and relationships just as a biological parents.

Grandparents and other relatives may have a distinct application to bring irrespective of the other family connections. Permission of the Court would be necessary to bring such applications.

In all cases concerning children the interests of the children is of paramount concern to the Court.

Here at Sharratts we will ensure that you are fully advised of all of the options available to you.
