Child Custody & Maintenance Solicitors - The Law House
"

The thing that experts agree on is that although divorce is difficult and stressful for kids no matter what, the real harm to kids comes from being subjected to conflict between parents. The longer that lasts, and the more severe it is, the worse it is for your children. If you truly want to shield your children from the pain of divorce, recognise that the more you take the high road with your spouse, the better job you’ll do

Child Custody & Maintenance Solicitors

Relationship breakdown through divorce and separation is an emotional and confusing time for the children involved. The upheaval caused in the family home when their parents decide to go their separate ways is a circumstance the children involved are unable to control and which can have a lasting impact. Sometimes, as adults, we forget to think about the effect that the relationship breakdown has on our children.

 

Unless the relationship breakdown is managed sensitively, the long term consequences for the child’s emotional and psychological well-being are potentially enormous.

At The Law House, we focus on the interests of your children and ensure that their needs remain a priority throughout. The decisions you make relating to your children are probably the most important when going through a separation or divorce and it is important that their views are heard. Our solicitors can help you to gain clarity on the essential questions relating to your children as a result of the relationship breakdown. These questions centre on determining parental responsibility, custody and access (as they used to be known) which means continuing contact with your children and making decisions about their living arrangements. In addition our solicitors are experienced in handling cases which involve an international element.

 

Whatever the reasons for your separation or divorce, your children will remain a constant in both of your lives, long after we have done our job. Call us on 020 3150 2525.
