It can be an extremely stressful time in your life should you need to experience going through a divorce. A divorce solicitor in London is able to provide you with expert advice on how to legally deal with any of the repercussions that arise from a couple leaving one another.
This also includes what happens to any children that are involved. One of the more upsetting things concerning divorce is needing to consider the arrangements regarding the children, determining who the child will live with and how much contact the other parent is going to have.
Divorce solicitors in London aim to ensure that the needs of the children are well met and we prioritise their needs above all else. It is important that they are not seriously impacted by the parental decision to separate and that the event is as smooth as possible for them. By trying at all times to create a safe and mutually respectful environment, we believe that we are able to allow couples to amicably separate for the wellbeing of themselves and their children.
It may be that you have already come to an agreement with your partner regarding the arrangements of the children, or perhaps you both have serious disagreements about how contact should be arranged. Whatever the situation, we will assist and aim to provide you with a swift outcome that is best for the children’s sake.
What considerations do we need to make regarding our children
Every parent has the right to see their children and children, in turn, have the right to see both of their parents. It is in the best interest in most cases that parents and children are able to see one another through different contact arrangements depending on other factors.
We can facilitate an agreement that can be sanctioned by the court and leaves all parties pleased with the result. In cases where contact is restricted or monitored, we are able to initiate the correct court proceedings so that nobody’s rights are denied.
Parental responsibility is a phrase used to recognise the important decisions that a parent makes in a child’s life. Mothers and fathers who are married legally have this parental responsibility, but for fathers who are not married to the mother of their child, there can become issues that we can assist in. Father’s rights are important to us and we can advise you on how you can legally play a more fulfilling role in your child’s life.
After a separation, child custody law helps parents decide where it is best for the child to live with and who will take care of them for most of the time. This is either done by an agreement between the parents or through the courts.
We have a vast range of knowledge in this sector and assist parents and the courts on deciding who should have custody of the child and to what level the other parent can have rights to access. We prioritise the interest of the children to ensure their safety and happiness are not compromised unnecessarily.
