When parents or other relatives cannot agree arrangements in respect of children that they care for, or with whom they wish to see – there is often a need for urgent legal advice and support.

Our experienced and empathetic Family Law team are available to provide expert and confidential support when you need it.

How we can help

Our Family Law team aims to deliver child-focused solutions to the following types of child-related issue:

  • Child arrangements;
  • Removal of a child from a resident parent, grandparent or other carer;
  • Failure to return a child to a resident parent, grandparent or other carer;
  • Child abduction;
  • Acquiring parental responsibility;
  • Any other specific issue or difficulty relating to a child.

Finding resolution

If a dispute cannot be settled through negotiation or mediation, then our specialists will represent you in an application to the court to resolve the matter.
