Faith Williams Law understand how hard it is to make child arrangements when a relationship has broken down. We can help and support you through the transition period after a divorce or separation and ensure the arrangements are as amicable as possible.
Our experienced and passionate family law team will be by your side through this difficult time to help mediate and negotiate child arrangements. Our aim is to make arrangements that best take into consideration every family members needs.
Our dedicated family team also offer a mediation service to help communicate the needs and feelings of both parties, in a calm and effective manner after a relationship breakdown. We try and ensure the best interests of the children and both parents are considered and the best outcome for child arrangements is agreed.
Mediation – Child Arrangements
Our Family Law team offer a mediation service to help and support divorced and separated parents to try and come to an amicable agreement about child arrangements.
Our compassionate family law team can offer an impartial, calming, diplomatic air to these otherwise fraught child arrangements. We ensure the best interests of the children are considered without the raw emotions of the separated parents clouding their judgement at this difficult time.
Child arrangements order
If the divorced or separated parents still can’t agree even with mediation then our family law team can represent you on a child arrangements order.
This will mean going to court and potentially numerous court hearings to come to an agreement on child arrangements. The court may well ask you to try mediation again before making a ruling.
A ‘child arrangements order’ decides:
- where your child or children live
- how often your child sees each parent
- what other types of contact take place and the frequency (phone calls, for example)
- The Child arrangement order replaces ‘residence orders’ and ‘contact orders’. Parents with the previous orders do not need to re-apply.
