At the forefront of family law, our children’s solicitors can help at a stressful time.
Child Arrangement Orders were introduced by the Children and Families Act 2014 and came into force on 22nd April 2014, replacing ‘residence’ and ‘contact’ orders.
These Court provisions or Orders set out;
- Who the child is to live with, spend time with and have contact, and
- When (the time and amount of time) the child is to live, spend time with and have contact with any person
Furthermore, the Child Arrangements Programme has been established to try to facilitate the resolution of disputes between parties outside of the court system, and, if this is not possible, resolution of any dispute quickly and efficiently through the court system.
Before the Court’s involvement, however, the parties must attendance at a MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) where a trained Mediator will try to assist the parties to resolve any issues.
We realise that when a relationship is breaking down the interests of the child(ren) of the family are paramount and will do our utmost to ensure that the considerations of the parties are balanced with a view to reaching the right conclusion for the long term benefit of the children.
All initial enquiries are completely free of charge. Please either call us on 0121 746 3002 or complete a Free Online Enquiry to see how we can help you.
