Our family law experts can provide expert legal advice and representation relating to children, including contact proceedings, financial arrangements and parental responsibility. These applications are often the most stressful for individuals to cope with independently, without a family law barrister. However our family law specialists have experience in all types of applications relating to the Children Act 1989 and can help achieve a positive outcome for you and your children.
We can represent you in an application under the Children Act 1989 for a Child Arrangements Order. These applications will often involve the production of a report from CAFCASS and proceedings will address issues such as where your child will live during weekdays and weekends, during term time and holiday time and how much contact they will have with each parent.
Under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989, you can apply for a financial remedy for your child if the other parent is not providing sufficient financial maintenance. Our family lawyers in London can provide representation throughout these proceedings including at the First Appointment, Financial Dispute Resolution Hearing (FDR) or Final Hearing.
