Children involved in your dispute

Any issue involving children needs to be handled carefully and sensitively. From living arrangements, relocation and schooling to trusts and other financial matters, we will focus on finding a way forward that places the child’s needs first.

When children are involved in your separation the emotional impact on everyone involved is heightened. We handle every matter involving children with the utmost sensitivity.

It is usually best for your family if any disputes involving your children can be resolved through agreement between you and your partner, and ideally through collaborative or mediated means rather than in the courts if that can be achieved. In our first meeting with you, we will quickly assess your situation and recommend the best approach.
 
We have experience in all types of issues involving children – whether disputes over paternity, living arrangements, access (by parents or grandparents), schooling, maintenance, relocation and parental alienation. We bring particular insight where there are international and cross-border issues or where there are inter-related complicated financial arrangements.

Due to our depth of experience with complex international work we have successfully represented parents in preventing their children from being moved to live in another country, and alternatively helping others to move. 

We also benefit from being able to bring in our trust lawyers who work to safeguard the financial interests of children during separation and divorce, as well as our reputation management team who can help to keep them out of the public eye.
