Arrangements for children

Going through divorce, civil dissolution or separation with children is difficult, but is something that can be worked through for a better outcome for all. It may be the case that you’re currently going through a relationship breakdown and want assurances for yourself and your children. Or it may be the case that you’ve already separated from your former partner, but would like to revisit existing child arrangements as your circumstances have changed. Whatever your situation, our family solicitors in Henley can support you and your ex-partner to agree on arrangements for your children.

Our priority, like yours, is to put your child’s best interests first and to ensure any outcome will best serve their health and welfare. To help minimise any impact felt by you and your child, we’ll look to find a balanced approach outside of court. This makes for a smoother and less costly process wherever it’s possible.

The key areas that we’ll work to establish an agreement on for your child are:

Living arrangements
Time with each parent, including permitted contact when they’re not in one parents company
Physical, emotional and educational needs

There is no right or wrong arrangement as every family’s needs are different, and these needs may shift over time. What we focus on is what is right for your child now and encourage an open dialogue where possible. Whether you are a mother, father, guardian or close relative, speak to our family lawyers to see how we can help.

For a same-day response, contact our team before 3pm Monday to Friday on 01491 411 884.
