Stowe Family Law’s dedicated children’s department advises our clients on the options available to them as parents and helps clients to resolve any contested issues raised in relation to custody and living arrangements of their children. In cases involving children, court action should be used as a last resort and the welfare of the children will remain the paramount consideration.
Child Arrangement Orders, which have replaced Child Contact, Child Custody Orders and Residence Orders, are legal agreements setting out where a child should live (residence), who they should spend time with (contact) and who the children are allowed to see during the contact.
Stowe Family Law also assists clients with contact issues that may arise months or years after a divorce has been finalised. These also include cases where one parent wishes to move with the child to another part of the UK, or to another country which involves International Child Laws.
Our Children’s Department specialises in difficult and intractable cases concerning children issues arising on divorce or separation such as Specific Issue Orders, Prohibited Step Orders, Parental Responsibility Orders, internal and external relocation applications and Child Arrangement Orders (formerly known as Residence and Contact Orders). We can help you work out how to get custody if that is the most appropriate way to proceed.
