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 quicker 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. Our approach is to acknowledge the rights and responsibilities of each parent, whilst focusing on the interests of the children when considering both the short term and long term arrangements. 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.

This video explains more about the Court procedure relating to children, but we will try to avoid Court proceedings wherever possible for the benefit of you and your children.

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 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 through 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

If you would like legal advice about the arrangements for your children or on any family matters, then please feel free to contact us.

    I found the advice and support given by Gilva and her team calm, re-assuring and thorough. At all times I had faith that our approach was sound and we were seeking the best possible outcome for me and my son.

    I will not hesitate to recommend you when the opportunity arises. I have found you to be extremely concise, straight forward, factual, professional and I sensed no ulterior agendas (you really do think about your client rather than the money!) Thank you so much for that support.

    I would like to thank you for all your help in dealing with the divorce, which was difficult, and for making the legal process less stressful than it could have been.
