  • Where your children should live
  • Contact arrangements and sleeping arrangements
  • Financial agreements around contributing towards the cost of bringing up your child
  • Changing the child’s name
  • Where your child goes to school

Children’s Arrangements >

If you and your former spouse or partner cannot reach an agreement relating to your child arrangement, then Major Family Law can help you to resolve your differences swiftly and with the least amount of bitterness.

Child-and-Parental-Icon

Child Arrangement & Child Enforcement Order Process >

As with all parental disputes, it can be difficult for separating couples to reach a fair and reasonable decision regarding their children’s living arrangements.

Child-and-Parental-Icon

What is the Schedule 1 Children Act 1989? >

The Schedule 1 Children Act 1989 gives the Court the power to make Orders for financial provision for children. A parent, guardian, special guardian or person with whom a child lives under a Child Arrangements Order can apply to the Court for financial provision for a child.

Step Parent Parental Responsibility >

Step families are a common feature in modern life. If someone significantly features in a child’s upbringing alongside one or both biological parents, how can that relationship be recognised?

Child-and-Parental-Icon

International Child Relocation >

It is becoming increasingly common upon the breakdown of a relationship or marriage for one parent to want to take their child to live abroad with them.

Child-and-Parental-Icon

Domestic Child Relocation >

It is becoming increasingly common upon the breakdown of a relationship or marriage for one parent to want to take their child to live abroad with them.

Child-and-Parental-Icon

Grandparents Rights >

Sadly it is a well-known fact that the breakdown of marriage or relationship can affect the goodwill that previously existed between spouses and extended family members, particularly grandparents.
