To us, helping parents find amicable and workable solutions to disputes regarding their children is essential. When parents disagree over which of them their children should live with or when they should see the other parent, an application to the court may seem unavoidable.
We can also assist with specific concerns regarding children, such as a dispute over a holiday, a change of name or a choice of school.
Parents who no longer live together both have financial responsibilities towards any children that they may have. It may be, for example, that a child lives with its mother and she seeks maintenance (a regular financial contribution) from the father towards the child’s upkeep and welfare. Where the parents can not agree the level of payments to be made informally, they may require legal advice.
Spratt Endicott advocates the assistance of mediation or family therapy where such an approach is appropriate and can avoid the need for Court proceedings. Where matters cannot be resolved by agreement, we will assist with the practicalities and guide you through the Court process.
Spratt Endicott offers a fully-managed service to provide you with as much or as little legal support as you may require either in negotiating arrangements concerning children or dealing with matters through the court.
We provide our clients with a copy of the Government-produced Parenting Plan and useful documentation published by Resolution. This can help parents review how they approach disputes with their former partner, enabling them to focus on their children’s needs.
We are often asked to clarify that payment of child support, or lack of it, must have no bearing on the level of contact enjoyed by the paying parent.
