SPECIALIST FAMILY LAW FIRM
We recognise that one of the biggest concerns when facing a separation is in relation to any children of the family. We help our clients to focus on what is in their child's best interests in order that the distress and disruption to them is kept to an absolute minimum.
O'Malley Solicitors are experienced in a wide range of children matters and if you and your spouse cannot agree on an appropriate arrangement, we offer specialist advice to facilitate the decision-making process. We strongly encourage negotiation between parents to reduce the stress involved and achieve the most suitable arrangement for your children, but if this cannot be agreed upon we will help with court applications and ensure you are well-represented during the various hearings.
The most common orders applied for from the court include:
- Residence Order – to determine with whom the child lives
- Contact Order – to determine the level of contact the other parent has with the child
- Parental Responsibility Order – to give an unmarried father the same legal parental rights as the mother
To discuss any issues surrounding children do not hesitate to contact Tina O'Malley for specialist, personal advice on 01954 202075.
