Our team understands the strain that agreeing the arrangements for children can cause for all parties involved. No two cases are the same and therefore our team will be with you each step of the way to ensure the process reflects your specific circumstances and the most suitable and conciliatory resolution is found for your family.
We also have a team of specialist care lawyers who work alongside parents and guardians on cases in which the local authority and social services are involved.
