Children issues whether it be which parent the child should live with; how often they should see the non-resident parent; what surname they should have or where they should go to school can often prove tricky issues to agree upon separation or divorce. All our lawyers will approach these issues sensitively and ensure that your children’s welfare is paramount.
At Rix & Kay, our team can provide effective and pragmatic advice to you regarding issues you may have involving your children and the options available to you.
Where there are children involved, we will encourage you to consider trying to resolve any issues directly or if this is not possible, by using either the options of Mediation or Collaborative Law. These options help to open a dialogue between you and your former partner/spouse with the aim of helping you to reach an agreement. If you require us to liaise with your former partner/spouse on your behalf, we will do so with the aim of resolving matters without the need for court proceedings.
There are situations where disagreements cannot be resolved without the involvement of the Court, and there are a number of reasons the court may need to get involved in helping to make decisions. Our Family Team are extremely experience in representing you throughout the Court process.
We are able to assist and advise you on whether to make an application to the Court, and throughout the process.
