When your children are involved in a divorce, dissolution or separation, there is often another level of complexity. Both parents want what is best for the children, but sometimes that may result in different opinions and expectations. Our lawyers at The Family Law Practice in Bristol can guide and assist our clients to resolve these often difficult and contested issues in the most child focused way. We can help you to resolve issues such as the children’s living arrangements, school and education choices, children's surnames and other important decisions in your children’s lives.
Our team of family lawyers, all of whom are Resolution members can advise you on alternatives to court such as mediation, collaborative law and arbitration and can direct you towards parenting programmes aimed at reducing the conflict when parents separate. Sometimes however we recognise it may be necessary to rely upon the court’s intervention, when there is an impasse or simple disagreement as to what is in the child’s best interest. We have experience in dealing with such matters, and can help you to apply for or challenge a Child Arrangement Order if that becomes necessary.
The Family Law Practice can also offer specialist legal advice in international cases, where a parent has moved or is considering relocating to another country outside of the jurisdiction.
