Here to help you get child arrangements right
New child arrangements must be considered, such as where the child will live and how much time they will spend with the other parent.
The key to getting this right is always to put the needs of the children first, by considering questions like:
- Which parent has the most time available to look after them
- Whose home is nearest to your children's school and friends
- What changes might happen in terms of schools as children get older
Answering questions like these can go a long way to helping you reach an agreement that is in your child or children's best interests. If you can do this, there may be no need to involve , as legal intervention is usually only necessary when parents can't reach an agreement.
However, particularly at a time when emotions are running high, it isn't always possible for even the most loving parents to agree on suitable child arrangements.
When that happens, in the first instance you might want to consider mediation, so that an impartial expert can help you to come to an agreement. Or, if an agreement can't be reached, our dedicated family lawyers are always here to help you with every aspect of children's law and child arrangements.

The best solicitors to fight your corner! I struggled with a nasty unmarried couple dispute alone for over a year before biting the bullet and paying for proper legal support. I had one previous experience with a cheaper less well-known solicitor and I just felt completely let down and not a priority. But with Slater and Gordon, from start to finish, I felt supported 100% and valued. B L (family and personal matters case)
Matters were dealt with efficiently with a view to keeping costs to a realistic level and I am well satisfied with the final settlement she managed to achieve on my behalf. J B (family and personal matters case)
For anyone needing help with family issues I could not recommend Slater and Gordon highly enough. I always had the feeling I had the best looking after my interests and they certainly didn't disappoint. C I (family and personal matters case)
