Family issues

Child related disputes

We have expertise in residence, contact, financial maintenance of children, child relocation and child abduction. We’ll advise you on your rights and obligations and on your options regarding dispute resolution. 

The courts are often not best placed to resolve disputes over children, but we have considerable expertise in court when litigation is required.  Our team also has two accredited and practising family mediators and two practising collaborative lawyers, for alternative dispute resolution.

Clear advice
