Separating can be a very difficult time especially when trying to make arrangements for your children.
The first step is to try and establish a routine and agreement on where the children are to live and the amount of time the children will spend with each parent.
Consider carefully the arrangements for the children. If appropriate consider a parenting plan to assist all concerned in the future arrangements. If you are unable to discuss matters with the other parent, you may find a communication book useful. Most importantly do not discuss adult issues with the children.
Ultimately the paramount consideration when dealing with matters of this nature is the welfare of the children.
Ideally matters can be resolved without the need for Court proceedings. However, if this is not possible we are here to help with the preparation of the application forms and represent you at Court.
