Arrangements for Children

Agreeing arrangements for your children can be one of the most stressful and difficult aspects of any divorce or separation

The breakdown of any relationship has the potential to cause considerable distress for any children involved. Having an experienced lawyer on your side can make it easier and faster to come to an arrangement that is in the best interests of you and your children.

Tisshaws Family Law Solicitors can provide you with confidential, expert advice and guide you through the options available to you. When considering both short and long term arrangements, our approach is to balance the rights and responsibilities of each parent, with what is in the best interests of the children. Throughout the process, we will always ensure that you are fully informed of all your options at every stage, so you feel in control of the process as much as possible.

Finding the best solutions for you and your children

As members of Resolution, we will always seek to resolve any disputes relating to children in an amicable and constructive manner. We try and help you reach an agreement between yourselves without the intervention of the courts wherever possible, because you will know your family’s situation better than anyone. We may recommend mediation if a negotiated settlement is proving difficult, and we can support you throughout the process.

Supporting you in court

If you are unable to reach agreement and need to use the court procedure, you can be assured that you will be represented by a highly-experienced lawyer who will guide you through the process.


We can talk through your options before you make any decisions

    On a more personal note, I would like to thank you so much for your kindness, support and measured professionalism throughout what turned into an extremely long and traumatically complex process. I have no doubt it would have been considerably more difficult for me without your calm guidance and understanding throughout.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am for all the help you gave me over the last few years. As hard as it was at times, having someone who knew their job and could deal with all of the different aspects of the case to such a high standard certainly made it easier.

    I always felt able to ask Hana anything relating to the paperwork and always received a prompt response. I really appreciated how processes were explained and detailed to me in a way that I could understand. This gave me reassurance at times when I felt unsure of what was next and what needed doing.

    Very grateful to Lidia who was excellent. She felt like a friend during this, and is very intelligent and skilled. I was anxious that my divorce wouldn’t turn into an expensive battle, and Lidia’s calm, factual advice ensured this. I will have no hesitation in recommending her, and Tisshaws to friends and colleagues.
