Upon divorce or separation, issues relating to children require sensitive and expert handling. Family Law Consultancy (FLC) has extensive experience in acting for parents in difficult disputes, regarding their children.

When children are involved in a separation or divorce important and difficult decisions need to be made about their welfare. These decisions will typically revolve around the resolution of two key issues:

  • Residence: Where the children live and who cares for them on a daily basis.
  • Contact: Children are entitled to have reasonable contact with both parents.

Family Law Consultancy can help you through the legal elements of these decisions, particularly with respect to the level of contact which is reasonable in your case.

We can also advise in relation to applications by the local authority to place a child into care.

Sometimes, a parent may wish to permanently remove a child from England and Wales to live elsewhere but does not have the other parent’s agreement. Whether you are the parent seeking to do this, or the parent who opposes it, we can represent and advise you. If you believe there is an imminent risk of your child being abducted, either to another country or just from your immediate care, there are emergency steps that can be taken to prevent removal and protect the child.

Family Law Consultancy offer a specialist service for children and family law advice in Norwich and the surrounding areas in Norfolk.
