Child Arrangement Orders / Custody

Unfortunately when a relationship breaks down children are often caught in the middle and it is not always easy to agree the arrangements for your children with your ex-partner. In most cases it will be expected that your children should have a relationship with both parents provided that it is safe and appropriate to do so depending on the circumstances of your individual case.
