Arrangements for Children


When a relationship breaks down and children are involved, your main concern will be to protect their wellbeing. So it’s good to know that at Barker Booth & Eastwood we make your children our number one priority too.

Throughout all the practical considerations that are required during a separation or divorce, we never lose sight of the fact that your children’s physical and emotional wellbeing comes first.

Our family law Solicitors are experienced in helping parents and families make arrangements for children following the breakdown of a relationship. We’ll make sure that everyone involved understand their legal rights and responsibilities whilst ensuring that the views of you and your children are heard.

Of course, children have practical needs as well as emotional ones and it can sometimes be difficult to focus on the best practical solutions when a relationship has broken down. But our family Solicitors will bring clarity to your situation. We’ll clearly explain what arrangements for children need to be considered and help you put things in place to create a more stable and happy future for you and your children.

If you’re filing for divorce, the Courts will require a form which sets out arrangements for how your children will be cared for called a Statement of Arrangements. We can guide you through what the Courts expect, will explain what options you have, and will help put together all the necessary costs.

We would also refer you to our section on Mediation and Collaborative Law.

We offer, in certain circumstances, fixed fees, further details of which will be provided upon request.
