CHILDREN CONTACT & RESIDENCE DISPUTES
If you’re splitting up and you have children, you need to agree what will happen to them.
Discussing child arrangements can be tense and very emotional, particularly when you’re already talking about breaking up and financial arrangements.
The first step is to try and reach an agreement by talking to each other (directly or through lawyers) or through mediation. We don’t offer mediation ourselves, but we can refer you to expert mediators who can help.
If, after trying mediation, you can’t reach an agreement that’s in the best interests of your children, you can apply to the family courts for a child arrangement order. This covers where children will live – with one parent or both – and also when and how they will spend time with one or both parents.
