Residence & Contact Disputes about Children
When a relationship involving children breaks down, it can be very stressful and complicated as you navigate your way through the legalities around residence agreements and any contact disputes. You naturally only want the best for your children and trying to reach agreements on who they will stay with and what contact should be allowed can be an emotional rollercoaster and stressful time for all concerned, including your chilren.
Generally, the best childcare agreements are those which are worked out by the parents, rather than by the court as they have limited exposure and or knowledge of your family and what will truly be in the best interests for your children.
It can be challenging to reach an agreement when you’re separated and often it can help to have a lawyer you can entrust to negotiate on your behalf.
