The end of your relationship with your partner or spouse should not bring about more challenges other than the unavoidable, especially when it comes to how your children will be situated after. We have expert Child Arrangement lawyers who can assist you with the decision making on the most viable arrangement for your children.

When disputes arise and a practicable set-up cannot be established, you may, with the aid of our solicitors, turn to the courts, to make sure that your children’s best interest is served.

The best case scenario is when parents can amicably agree on the arrangement. Primarily they should determine who will be the resident parent, or the one with whom the children will live with. This is important because the chosen resident parent is seen to be the one who will contribute the most in the rearing of the children. The other parent, who usually moves out of the family home, may be allowed to have contact with the children, on an agreed time, duration, manner, and location.
Some factors that weigh in on the choice of resident parent:
Aside from living arrangements, the Parenting Plan may detail how to give support for the emotional well-being of the children as they adjust to the separation, as well as the practical aspects, like financial duties for the education, health, and hobbies of the children, the preferred mode and constancy of communication, and even the activities to be undertaken during school and holiday breaks.
