  • Children Act applications for residence, contact, specific issue and prohibited steps orders.

Our pricing structure allows for a fixed fee and we will also provide a detailed breakdown of costs. There will be no nasty surprises during this troubled time for you.

If at all possible, we will endeavour to negotiate a settlement of disputed issues with your (former) partner in solicitors' correspondence or, if that is not possible, we will advise you fully on proposed proceedings and the possible outcomes.
