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.
