ACCESS/CONTACT IN RELATION TO CHILDREN

Following a separation, divorce, or dispute between broken down relationships where children are involved, we work on a case-by-case basis to find a fair solution for all parties that considers parental access to children, in terms of what is best suited to the interest of the child or children.
