Our family law solicitors have years of experience in helping parents and families make the best arrangements for children following divorce or separation. We understand just how important your children's future happiness and welfare is to you and we're here to help you put things in place to create a more stable and happy future for you and for them.
We'll advise you on your legal rights and responsibilities and ensure that the views of you and your children are heard. Our family lawyers are experts in dealing with a range of disputes affecting children including:-
- Who the children should live with
- Where the children should live - both in the UK and abroad
- Who the children should see
- Who makes important decisons about their lives
- Who pays for their maintenance
- Changing their name, school and other welfare issues
We advise not only parents but also grandparents facing the distress of being cut out of their grandchildrens' lives or their contact with them being unreasonably restricted.
One way of resolving children disputes is through skilled negotiation and expert mediation and we encourage clients to try and reach agreement if possible. This approach will often save costs and emotional upset. But if settlement can't be reached and your case has to go to court, you can trust in our legal expertise, our advocacy skills at court and our determination to fight for the best result for you and your children.
At QualitySolicitors Belshaws our lawyers use plain English - not legal jargon. We’ll explain everything in a way that’s clear and easy to understand. We also offer free, initial, over-the-phone advice and will explain the costs and timescales involved up front so you always know what to expect.
