Children and divorce

Children and divorce

Happily, most separating or divorcing couples are able to agree the arrangements for their children, such as where they will live and how often they will see the other parent.

In most divorces the court does not need to get involved at all.

The court will only make orders about your children as part of the divorce if there is a serious dispute that you can’t sort out by agreement with each other. Many parents are helped by attending at mediation together. In cases where agreement is not possible we may advise you to apply to court for an order about your children. Find out more about the court’s range of powers to sort out disputes about children.

We offer a range of fixed fees for many of our services, including in relation to disputes about children.
