Arrangements for children

If you have children, and are getting divorced or separated you may need help to decide arrangements for where your children will live, and how much time they will spend with each parent.

You may have questions over who has parental responsibility and what this means in practice. These are especially complicated issues in regard to fostered, adopted and step-children of the family, all of which need practical and sensitive advice.

If you are a parent or grandparent and you are being denied the opportunity to spend time with your children or grandchildren, then we may be able to help you regulate the arrangements.

Ansons family law solicitors, in Cannock and Lichfield Staffordshire, are highly experienced in resolving family disputes. As members of Resolution we will try to achieve an outcome that is agreed by both parties, putting the interests of the children first. Where this is not possible, we can advise on what further options are available to you.

Laura Lambert is trained in collaborative law, which offers divorcing or separating couples the chance to resolve disputes outside of court including those over children and financial arrangements. Negotiations take place at a series of meetings between you and your partner with your lawyers present. Alternatively, if required, we can make arrangements for you to attend mediation.

We provide practical advice and support, and when necessary can guide you through any court process that is required in order to resolve your issues. Advice can also be given on specific issues such as permission for medical treatment, decisions about your child’s schooling and even removal from the county in emergency situations.

Our family solicitors in Cannock and Lichfield, can also help you to agree arrangements for:

  • parental responsibility
  • emergency applications and injunctions
  • change of name
  • grandparent applications.
