Child Custody / Residence

Child residence is often described as child custody. The most important part of any Divorce or separation proceeding is that any child involved in separation or divorce proceedings has a safe, secure home to live in.

Usually the children will live mainly with one parent and the other will have visitation rights at regular, pre-arranged times. Our Family Law Solicitors can assist you in negotiating these plans.

Sometimes it might be possible for both parents to have shared custody of their children. For shared custody to work it needs to be possible for the children to move frequently between houses without it being disruptive or disturbing to them.

We also specialise in acting for children and family members in other disputes i.e. where parents are separated and there are problems in facilitating contact or a disagreement regarding where the children should live
