Arrangements for Children & Family Mediation

Where a child will live or how long they will spend with each parent can be a highly charged issue.

There are no hard and fast rules about how often a child should see each parent and it is very much dependent upon the facts of each case and what is in the best interests of the child.

Parents can often agree these arrangements between themselves or with the assistance of mediation.  If not, we are able to assist through negotiating on behalf of our client or by guiding them through the court system where necessary. As with financial issues, we make every effort to try and reach an agreement as early on as possible, even if the court has become involved.

In appropriate cases, the arrangements for children can be recorded in a court order.
