Child Arrangements

At Poole Alcock, our experienced team of child law and family solicitors specialise in dealing with difficult child custody cases; we understand each dispute should be handled sensitively as this process can be highly emotional for those involved.

Making child arrangements can be difficult, as you may also be going through the stress of a divorce or separation. The child’s welfare is the most important outcome, and the parents are legally responsible for deciding, in the child’s best interests, who has the most time to look after the child given your circumstances and commitments.

Negotiating custody (called child arrangements by the Court) is a delicate subject which should be handled with the utmost care to achieve the best possible outcome for those involved. If both partners can reach an amicable agreement, you will not need to go to court. However, if you or your partner disagrees with the requests put forward, further negotiation is required before escalating the dispute to court. Our team of child law solicitors will be by your side, every step of the way, to outline your options and assist with the progression of your case.

  • Parental Responsibility

    Participating in your child’s life is important to grow and develop the bond you have with your child. Mothers automatically receive parental responsibility on the birth of their child, however, and unmarried father may need to obtain this by law. We are here to advise you on your rights for parental responsibility and what you need to acquire.

  • Change of Surname

    The outcome of your custody dispute could determine whether you decide to change your child’s surname, which will require permission from those who have parental responsibility. A deed poll is required to begin this process, where our qualified team can assist with your application.

  • Change of Schools

    Whether you are requesting a change of school for your child, or wish to prevent this from happening through the application from your previous partner, our team of child law specialists will act quickly to mitigate your case.

  • Child Abduction

    Although you may have the legal requirements in place to ensure a civilised relationship with your child’s other parent, if they dispute the routine, you may require assistance to reach a new agreement. There is a lot to think about during this process, which is why at Poole Alcock solicitors, we offer a free initial advice appointment to help you understand your options and to discuss the best way going forward to avoid any conflict with your partner.
