Help with child custody
In the UK, the welfare of the child is the most important consideration when determining child custody arrangements following a divorce. The court will try to reach a decision that is in the best interests of your child or children, taking into account a variety of factors such as the children’s age, relationship with each parent, overall welfare, and any risks to their health or safety.
This is a very emotive issue, and our team at Prentice Family Law will aim to ensure that you have legal access to your child.
Mediation is a legal requirement in the UK, whether you are going through a traditional or no-fault divorce, and it is seen as a way of reaching an amicable conclusion.
We can help you in preparing for mediation by gathering relevant documents, identifying issues to be addressed, and setting clear goals for the mediation process.
There is a lot of paperwork when it comes to divorce, and our team will be able to help with the completion of the divorce petition, statement of arrangements for children, financial disclosure forms, decree nisi and decree absolute. Many of these documents have strict time constraints, and we will ensure that they are completed and submitted on time to move the process along without any delays.
A divorce will rarely need to go to court, as our team will always aim to keep it outside of this setting. But, if your divorce does go to court, we will defend you and ensure that you receive any assets you are entitled to.
