Child Arrangements Orders

Tilly Bailey & Irvine's experienced divorce solicitors in the North East can be found in Hartlepool, Wynyard, Stockton-on-Tees and Barnard Castle.

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

Ensuring that your children are well looked after is one of the main priorities in any parent's life.

However, it is an unfortunate fact that when family relationships break down, children will be caught up in the situation.  What happens to them can become an issue between the parents.

If there are children involved, the main priority is to agree where they will live and how their time is to be shared between you and your former partner. We understand that it can be difficult to reach agreement and we deal with this sensitively, avoiding the further upset and acrimony, making sure that the children’s welfare remains the priority at all times.  

We recognise that disputes involving children are particularly sensitive and we have significant expertise in dealing with such issues, including complex cases.

We aim to take a practical yet tactful approach to legal issues involving children, always aiming to put the child’s welfare at the centre of any work which we do.

When court proceedings become the only option, we have the experience needed to ensure that you are fully supported throughout the process and that the welfare of your children remains paramount.

Our team has considerable experience of advising parents on all matters relating to children.
