Disputes Concerning Children
Blacks Solicitors understand that for separating parents their primary concern is their children and that dealing with arrangements for them can be extremely emotive.
Your relationship as parents will continue after your separation so finding a constructive approach is crucial. We pride ourselves on our holistic view, offering whatever method works best for the family involved.
It is commonly accepted though that arrangements reached by agreement are more successful than those imposed by a third party, and we will encourage you to negotiate to find solutions that work best for you.
If negotiations break down, we have the expertise to guide you through the Court process where the guiding principle is the child’s welfare and what is in their best interests.
In establishing what is in the best interests of the child the Court may involve CAFCASS (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) or Social Services to investigate matters fully and provide their findings to the Court.
