Children Issues & Support

“Kim Fellowes has a stellar reputation for child support matters”

Chambers UK

Making sure that your child does not suffer in any situation is important to all parents. We offer impartial advice for all issues relating to children.

Children issues: residence, contact, abduction, adoption

In most divorce cases, the majority of disagreements occur when it comes to making decisions about children and finance.

If there are children involved when a couple separate, the main priority is to agree where they will live and how their time is to be shared between their parents. We understand that it can be difficult to reach agreement, and we deal with this sensitively, avoiding the creation of more upset and acrimony and making sure that the children’s welfare remains the priority at all times.

Our team has considerable experience of advising parents on all matters relating to children, including residence issues, contact, adoption and abduction.  Many members of our team are children specialists, accredited by national family law organisation, Resolution.

Child support

Agreeing how your children will be looked after financially is crucial. We will help you achieve a solution and advise on Child Support Agency assessments, if necessary, working through the process to make sure that payments are correctly assessed and fair.

We provide advice and representation to both the parent with care and the non-resident parent in relation to all issues of child support. Silk partner, Kim Fellowes, is a nationally recognised child support specialist, and advises government on issues relating to reform of the child support system.
