“In a dispute involving contact, our role is to facilitate agreement between the parents.”

Children

It is well-recognised that negotiated agreements between adults generally enhance long-term co-operation, and are better for the children concerned.

So if at all possible, you should avoid having a court decide arrangements in respect of your children.

Unfortunately there are situations when parents simply cannot agree as to what is best for their children. As a last resort a court may become involved.

Unless there is a very good reason, the court would expect both parents to be involved in their children’s lives. Practically this will involve the children staying with both parents on a weekly basis and holidays being shared.

The courts expect and encourage parents to take a collaborative, co-operative approach to these arrangements.

"All the staff were welcoming and friendly and they obviously recognise the need for such qualities when confronted by a client attempting to deal with such an emotional issue."
