In the case of divorce or a family dispute, it’s important to ensure that your children are the first priority. We have an unrivalled knowledge of all aspects of children’s law, and will do everything we can to do what’s best for your child, both today and in the future.
As experienced solicitors, we’ve handled all kinds of divorce and custody cases, but in each one, we’ll try to see it from both yours and the child’s perspective, ensuring that their needs are met.
We can help with child protection concerns, care cases and adoption cases. We also handle numerous private law cases, including with whom a child should live – either parents or grandparents – and how much time a child should spend with the other parent. We can assist with Child Arrangements Orders, and make financial order applications for child maintenance, school fees, disability payments and provision of accommodation.
Our team have years of experience in children’s law – in particular, Mathew Waddington, our head of department, has been a Children’s Panel solicitor for 10 years and was called on by the BBC to provide advice for the Helen and Rod storyline on The Archers.
We’re well respected by judges, social workers and the Child and Family Court Advisory Support Service (CAFCASS), and we’re not afraid to be stern in the face of the opposition to achieve what’s in your child’s best interests. In court, we rarely use barristers to advocate for our clients – many members of our team are trained advocates, and we’ll represent you personally to achieve the best results possible.
