Private Law Children Advice

If you are contemplating divorce, dissolution or separation from your partner, your first concern will probably be about where your children will live and how they will spend time with both of you.

Even if you divorce or separate, you will both continue to be parents. So it is important to make sure that the changes ahead do not prevent you from co-operating and communicating effectively on what is best for your children.
