Child law is a universally sensitive subject. That’s why our expert team of family lawyers are highly trained to treat each case with sensitivity, diligence, respect and discretion.
is an umbrella term, which encompasses what used to be called Residence and Contact (before was Custody and Access). Child Arrangements Orders determine with whom the child will live and how much time they will spend with the other parent.
prevent one parent from doing something, which the other parent would object to (such as removing a child from their school, the country or changing their name).
direct the way in which a disagreement should be resolved, such as whether a child can be relocated within, or outside of, England and Wales, whether a child can go on holiday abroad (with their parent), where a child should go to school or what medical treatment the child should receive.
(formally known as the Child Support Agency) usually deals with the level of maintenance a parent has to pay.
However, if one or both of the parents are high earners and fall outside the remit of the scheme, Russells Solicitors are adept at dealing with this. We offer advice on payment of private school fees, the provision of a home and/or the transfer of a property to house the child(ren), as well as meeting other financial needs for the children.
All of our family solicitors are members of Resolution, the UK’s recognised organisation for specialist family lawyers.
