Arrangements for Children

When a relationship breaks down and children are involved, your main concern will be to protect their wellbeing. So, it is good to know that at Blossom Law Solicitors we make your children our number one priority too.

Issues regarding arrangements for children can sometimes arise a while after the breakdown of a relationship. It’s very important to seek legal advice as early as possible in any potential child dispute. Throughout all the practical considerations that are required during a separation or divorce, we never lose sight of the fact that the wellbeing of any children comes first. 

Our family law solicitors are experienced in helping parents and families make arrangements for children following the breakdown of a relationship. We’ll make sure that everyone involved understands their legal rights and responsibilities whilst ensuring that the views of you and your children are heard.

Our family solicitors will help to bring clarity to your situation. We will clearly explain what arrangements for children need to be considered and help you put things in place to create a more stable and happy future for you and your children.

Shared Care and Joint Custody Arrangements

Blossom Law Solicitors are able to provide advice or assistance in cases where a party is seeking shared care arrangements for their child/children, sometimes referred to as joint custody or joint residence. We try to resolve issues without the involvement of the Court where possible so that parties can agree any arrangements for contact (access) and residence (custody) as amicably as possible. In situations where it may not be possible, we are able to advise and assist with Court proceedings in order to resolve any issues to child arrangements.

Reduced Contact and Access

In some circumstances it may be necessary to reduce or suspend contact or access. Sometimes the involvement of secure environments such as contact centres may be necessary. Similarly, it may also be appropriate to increase the current arrangements for contact or access. Our specialist family lawyers can recognise and advise when such actions are appropriate to assist you in your decision.

This also includes important decisions such as removing a child from the country permanently, otherwise referred to as removal from jurisdiction. We provide you with the advice to enable you to make the decisions you deem to be in your child’s best interests at every stage.

Father’s Rights for Custody

Our team of family lawyers can advise or assist fathers on any issues relating to child arrangements, such as access disputes or residence disputes. We are also able to advise on issues surrounding parental responsibility.

    In our recent move from Roundways to Keynsham we found the professional service we received from Blossom law was of a very high standard from the team, especially from Shennell Richards and Oye Edokpolor. We were kept informed regularly by email and phone of any progress being made with our move and sale. We always found the staff very helpful, professional and polite. We would be very happy to recommend Blossom Law for any future transactions, especially with the sale and purchase of property.

    The service I received from Blossom Law was efficient and stress-free, I felt like Shennell was really on the ball and pushed me for information rather than the other way around which kept things moving smoothly.

    We found the level of service from Shennell and all at Blossom Law Solicitors outstanding and I would have no trouble in recommending them to anyone.  Shennell is a highly efficient individual, replying to every query and email within hours if not minutes which we appreciated as we were one of several buyers in a chain. I’d be more than happy to recommend to anyone to use Blossom Law and Shennell in particular.  All in all the usually stressful experience of house buying was smooth and straightforward.

I would be recommending Charlotte in the future to our clients for sure.

    I was very pleased with how Blossom Law Solicitors handled the sale of my property.  I received regular emails informing me of how the sale was going and any issues were resolved quickly. They were friendly and professional regarding every aspect of the sale, and I completed on the day that was agreed with no problems. I would highly recommend them.
