Children - Private Law

Our Family Team are able to provide legal advice and representation in children matters. We are one of the few local firms who are able to provide Legal Aid for those who are eligible for funding.

We have members of Resolution, a family law organisation, committed to resolving disputes in a non-confrontational and constructive way. We are dedicated to providing honest and practical advice on the following:

  • Arrangements for children in separating families;
  • Child Arrangements Orders (formerly Residence and Contact Orders);
  • Parental Responsibility;
  • Step-Parental Responsibility Agreements;
  • Prohibited Steps Order;
  • Specific Issues Orders;
  • Special Guardianship Orders; and
  • Adoption.

We can offer legal advice to resolve disagreements taking into account the long term consequences of actions and encouraging you to put the best interests of your children first. We provide a holistic approach and regularly work with other professionals including mediators, family consultants and children’s centres to provide an outcome in the best interests of your children.

If you have questions about your rights in relation to a child then our team may be able to help. We pride ourselves on responding to your individual needs and are willing to work in a way that suits you.

We can provide Legal Aid and competitive fixed fees so you can obtain initial advice about your rights and options.

If you need further advice or assistance call 01245 349 696 or email Alexandra Dancey-Tucker at or Sarah Hillman at
