When a relationship breaks down, it is a difficult time for everyone, but the needs of the children should come first. Parents need to decide where the child or children should live and what contact the other parent should have. Such decisions are often difficult, provoking arguments and tension. There are other parties who might want to be involved, such as grandparents or step parents or same sex co-parents, in the day to day care of the children and this can make the matter even more complex.
You should seek legal advice from a specialist Family Law Solicitor about such matters and at Paul J Watson Solicitor, you can be sure that we take parents’ rights very seriously. We will advise you every step of the way, whether mediation or court proceedings should be your chosen route.

We are members of Resolution, and we therefore encourage settlement of cases in a non-confrontational way where at all possible. That does not mean that we will not fight your case in court if this is needed.
