Putting Children First

One of your biggest worries during a divorce proceeding should be the welfare of your children. Maintaining a meaningful relationship with both parents is invaluable for the child, and you need to discuss living requirements as well. After you divorce, you both remain parents to your children. It’s advisable to find common ground to ensure that the children are not affected by the divorce. This means reaching an amicable agreement on residence, contact, and responsibility for the children. A constructive approach will lay a good foundation for the children to settle in their new environment and come to terms with the new living arrangement.

Negotiation Breakdown

When negotiation fails or if it is not appropriate, the court has the power to make orders concerning the children. In making the order, the court considers the child’s welfare first. If applying or defending a court application, our experts help you make an informed decision. Assistance is also provided for applying to the court, and court representation is an option. Here is a sample of the court orders that we help with:

  • Contact
  • Residence
  • Non-Molestation
  • Parental Responsibility
  • Prohibited Steps
  • Specific Issue
  • Occupation order
  • Financial settlement for children
  • Enforcement of Orders
