Residence and contact disputes: When you separate from each other, you will both continue to be parents. Therefore, it is important to make sure that the process of ending your marriage or relationship doesn’t stop you being able to co-operate and make decisions as to what is best for your children. A constructive approach through the separation will lay the best foundations for the children to feel settled with the new family circumstances. Paradigm Family Law knows the importance of putting children’s interests first,with an approach that works in the long run for every member of the family.
How Paradigm Family Law can help you and your child: Frank and James’ sensitive and professional approach to children cases has helped several families in the UK & abroad to achieve the very best outcome for the whole family.
You know your children and so you will be best able to consider the effects of your separation on them and together devise the most suitable living arrangements. Negotiation is important, as agreements reached together are more likely to work in the long term and be respected by the wider family.
If you can’t agree on the arrangements, you can ask the court to decide the matter. We will advise you on the best way of doing this, without letting matters relating to children get tangled up in any financial disputes. In our experience Mediation sometimes assists both parents to understand the problems and to resolve these difficulties.
