Our team of family law specialists is able to advise on all aspects of the law concerning children.

Dealing with the breakdown of a relationship involving children is a complex area that needs to be handled sensitively. As members of Resolution, our team of family lawyers always strives to resolve difficulties, wherever possible, through negotiation in an effort to reduce conflict.

We advise on all issues concerning children which may arise upon the breakdown of a parental relationship including:-

  • Contact with children
  • Residence
  • The extent of financial support required in terms of child maintenance and capital payments
  • Disputes concerning schooling
  • The change of a child’s name
  • Adoption

We have significant experience of cases involving international elements, including applications to leave the country and set up home with a child abroad. In addition, we can issue urgent applications at Court for the return of children abducted abroad.

We also conduct claims under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989 which enables the Court to make awards of property, lump sums and maintenance provision for children.

Members of our team have substantial experience in the conduct of cases involving Social Services and care proceedings.


What our clients say…

Having Tim ‘on side’ during this traumatic episode made a real difference. He was a tremendous support but at the same time kept me focussed on the main objective, i.e. obtaining a sensible outcome. This, thankfully, we did achieve.
