You & Your Family

Children Law Solicitors

When children are at the centre of a separation, it can often lead to highly emotional disputes over what the child arrangements should be (sometimes referred to as custody, residence and visiting rights). Whether you want your children living with you or are trying to see more of them, this can be a stressful time for all parties involved – especially the children. Fishers experienced team of child law solicitors understand the sensitivity of these issues, and our main focus is to ensure your children’s needs are put first, no matter how complex the situation.

Children, especially those of a young age, may find it hard to come to terms with the separation of their parents and the readjustment of family life. When taking legal action in regards to childcare, professional advice, sensitivity and support are essential. Wherever possible, Fishers child arrangement order (custody) solicitors will encourage you to make arrangements for your children amicably through mediation or negotiation, in order for both parents to come to an agreement. However, from our many years experience, we know that this can’t always be achieved and that certain disputes require court action. In these circumstances, we will be by your side each step of the way to ensure the best interests of your children are protected and their needs are met.

We understand that the decisions you make in regards to child arrangements are the most important and life-changing decisions of all, and so your choice of solicitor should reflect this. With years of experience and success in child law cases, our child law solicitors are delicate but determined to ensure your children have the best chance of a happy life after your divorce or dissolution, no matter what it takes. 

 Services we offer:

  • Child Arrangements Order (often described as Residence, Contact, Custody or Access)
  • Specific Issue and Prohibited steps order
  • International or national relocation
  • Parental responsibility applications
