Having Problems Regarding Children Matters?

  • Posted

Children are one of the most important elements of our lives and something we sometimes all need help with. If you have trouble making arrangements for the children then we are here to help. Whether the issues are against a former partner, relative or local authority do not underestimate the importance of knowing your family law rights. At F Barnes our main aim is to try and reach an agreement without the need for issuing Court Proceedings.

We can help in relation to private child law which involves the individuals and or family members on matters relating to

  • residence and shared residence (custody)
  • contact (access)
  • parental responsibility
  • prohibited steps orders
  • specific issue orders
  • special guardianship orders
  • wardship and inherent jurisdiction

With matters involving the Local Authorities and Social Workers we can assist with

  • care/placement (adoption) proceedings
  • child protection issues and legal planning meetings
  • contact with children in care

Most cases are complex.  If you think you maybe affected by any of the above please call either Laura Hanford or Gemma Hodder who have all the necessary expertise and will be more than happy to help.

Free 30 minute consultations are available to help identify the best options for your family.
