When you separate there are a range of legal issues which can affect children. These include:

Where a child is to live and with whom ( Formerly known as a Residence Order, now called a Child Arrangement Order)

What time a child spends with the other parent (Formerly known as a Contact Order, now part of a Child Arrangement Order)

Whether or not the living arrangements can be shared (Formerly known as a Joint Residence Order)

Disputes as to the child’s surname, schooling or religion (Specific Issue Order)

Legal rights in respect of a child (Parental Responsibility Order)

Protective measures for a child such as stopping a child being removed from the jurisdiction (Prohibited Steps order)

 

Our experienced family law solicitors can assist with all of the above and will always aim to deal with your case sensitively and we will always aim to make sure that all parties keep your child’s welfare paramount.
