As family lawyers we are sensitive to the huge emotional trauma that the breakdown of a family relationship can have on children. How children cope with their parents’ separation and a new family structure depends on various factors including their age/stage of development, gender, personality, and their wider social support structures. Without a doubt however the greatest impact on children in the context of their parents’ relationship breakdown depends primarily on how the adults themselves are coping and how they relate to each other and to their children.
We are very experienced in advising clients over very many years on all legal issues affecting children in the context of relationship breakdown. We can advise you on all child issues including guardianship, custody, access and maintenance. Our approach is child-focused. We encourage our clients to see things from the child’s perspective. We will ask you to consider: ‘what is in the best interests of the child?’ Indeed, that is the approach that the Court will always take when making decisions concerning the welfare of dependent children.
