Children’s Contact

Children’s Contact

For parents who have or are thinking of separating it can be tricky working out contact and timetables. It can also be very emotive for both Mum and Dad as well as confusing for children who may feel they are “in the middle”.

Our aim is to prioritise the children and their wellbeing as well as making the arrangements workable for parents. We minimise conflict thus allowing negotiation and good communication to prevail.

The Family Court give recommendations with regards to contact and it is our aim at Marlborough Law to help parents understand and appreciate the implications and effect on children. Although it is not our intention to make Applications in the Family Court for contact we are very experienced in advocacy .

We manage expectations in any Court proceedings and our network of renowned Barristers means we can do the very best for our Clients.
