Family law / Children and residency

At Pennine Solicitors our expert child law solicitors have experience in handling all children matters, ranging from the straightforward through to the highly complex, with care and sensitivity.

Regardless of whether you are married or not, issues relating to children can arise in the event of a breakdown in a relationship.

When couples separate there are often significant issues with their children that need to be addressed. For example, it may be where the children are going to live or how much time they will spend with each parent. There may even be issues relating to the children's welfare.

Married couples with children

For married couples, children matters are usually decided in conjunction with the divorce process. However this is not always the case as issues can arise months or even years after a divorce has been finalised. It is important to understand that issues relating to children that arise after a divorce can still be handled and resolved.

Unmarried couples with children

Unmarried couples with children have access to the same legal remedies in relation to children as married couples. In all cases, the objective is to reach an agreement or resolve a specific issue. Often this can be done amicably without the need to go to Court, but sometimes Court is required where parents are unable to find a suitable resolution themselves.
