children disputes or arrangements

Children - Disputes or Arrangements

Our children are precious and when our family unit experiences changes of any kind our first worry is often in relation to our children. We can offer guidance as to the living arrangements for your children and the financial arrangements for them into the future. Many issues arise about our children and each case is individual, we have addressed a few of the potential situations below. We are happy to discuss how we can help your individual situation.

Arrangements for the children in term of residence, contact or any specific issue or prohibition following breakdown of relationship

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 and sympathetic approach will often resolve these emotive issues via negotiation. Mediation is also an option and we work with various organisations which we can refer you to if required. Keeping the lines of communication open in any such disagreement is always a key.

Court action should be the last resort but if it is a necessary option then we can advise and guide you through the process.

In certain complex matters, dependent upon the age of the child and the issues involved, the child may be made a party to a court case about themselves. This is only permissible if the court thinks that this is necessary. Your child would then have representation via a children’s guardian and/or solicitor to ensure that their voice is heard.

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, contact us to discuss your individual needs.
