Legal advice on Child Matters

When making decisions on the custody and care for a child after a separation or divorce, the courts rule in favour of what is in the best interests of the child.

Specific types of arrangements taken into account relate to the following:

  • Where the child will live
  • How much time will be spent with the child by each party
  • Holiday arrangements
  • Schooling and extra curricular activities
  • Financial support

We can make these arrangements enforceable by using form 11 application for consent orders, or by a minute of consent order if the matter has been to court. If there is ongoing disputes and the matter needs to go to court, we can also support you in this and if necessary brief expert specialized Barristers to advise and appear on your behalf in order for you to to obtain the best possible outcomes in your unique circumstances.
