Children

Children

Our supportive child law practitioners can advise you in all matters involving children, including disputes concerning where a child should live and the time they should spend with parents and other relations. Our legal team can help you to resolve disputes concerning a child’s education, religion, name and relocation.

Issues involving children can be emotional and stressful. We deal with your concerns professionally and efficiently aiming to bring quick resolution to your issues.

We deal with applications for permission to remove children from the jurisdiction and the unlawful removal of children both to and from this jurisdiction.

If you do not have parental responsibility for your child then we can advise you on how this can be achieved and draft the necessary paperwork.

Child Maintenance Service (previously Child Support Act)

We can advise on child maintenance applications made under the Child Maintenance Service (previously dealt with by the Child Support Act) by resident and non-resident parents. We can also give pragmatic advice on the variation procedure and appeals.
