Children Matters

When parents separate one of the most important things to resolve is what is going to happen in relation to your children. These can be issues relating to where the children will live, how often the children will get to see the parent they do not live with, where the children will go to school. Child arrangements should be as flexible as possible to enable them to meet the needs of the child. It is very important that parents try to communicate with each other as respectfully as possible to help them agree the best arrangements for the child.

If you are having difficulties agreeing on what the best arrangement for your child will be, we can help you. At Nelson Myatt we promote a non-confrontational approach to family problems. We try to encourage you to find solutions which consider the needs of your family as a whole with the best interests of your children at the heart of the solution and focusing on the long term. We will listen and be honest with you, explaining all the options that are available to you, so you feel the confidence to make the right decisions for your family.

We understand that it can be a challenge to balance the financial and emotional costs with what you want to achieve and so we try to offer you as many options as we can. We always suggest that families should first attempt mediation to try to come to an agreement amicably and swiftly. Another alternative route to take in these circumstances is arbitration, this process is more formal than mediation and is presided over by a judge, however, it is significantly quicker than the formal method of taking things to court, from start to finish it takes an average of 3-4 months and is much less costly.
