Specialists in Child Law 

When it comes to legal issues relating to children, we understand that it can be emotional and we focus on helping you through to a resolution quickly and with the child’s best interests at heart.


Child Law

From frequency of contact with their parents, to where the child should live, their religion and their name, every case is unique and the impact on your family is just as individual.   We can support you with whatever your child related concerns, and work through the necessary legal procedures on your behalf.

 To help you find the information you need we have outlined 3 scenarios below.  Please select which is most appropriate to your individual situation.

Family Break Up

My family unit has broken down and there are children involved. We can’t agree on what should happen to the children so we need legal advice on what to do.

Caring for Children

In order to properly look after the child in my care I need the legal authority to make major decisions concerning their welfare, such as choice of education or religion and consent to medical treatment. I do not have this authority at the moment.

Adoption & Special Guardianship

I want to give a child a loving home and need the legal authority to do so.
