Child Contact

Did you know that when parents separate very few actually go to the family courts to ask for their intervention. Most matters can be resolved through simple negotiation or mediation. If you cannot get an agreement with your ex-partner, we can help you.

The first step is to try negotiation then mediation to see if a neutral third party can help you to agree the a plan for you to see your children. 

Common Issues

  • How often you can see your kids or how ofren you are willing to allow your ex-partner to see them
  • Whether contact should be supervised
  • Whether you should allow/be allowed overnight contact

It is important to always ask yourself one question throughout your dispute - is what’s best for your kids?

Going to court should always be a last resort, but for many is still the only way they are able to see their children, or prevent a violent or abusive ex-partner from having contact with them.

If you are seeking contact with your child after a separation you can gain a Contact Order from the courts setting out your ‘rights’ to see your children and under what circumstances. This is now known as a Child Arrangement Order.

If you are trying to prevent an ex-partner having contact with your children, perhaps because of welfare concerns, you can oppose the Court granting of any Order for contact.

      There is a common misconception that the court favours the mother, when deciding who a child should live with, the Court will consider what is best for your child, not the parents. They do not automatically favour one parent over the other.

      Family law in England & Wales has evolved to recognise that a father can be the primary caregiver, just as women can now be the breadwinners. There is no gender bias. The courts consider what is in the best interests of the child.
