When it comes to divorce, there can often be children involved in this process which means it is important to sort child arrangements out so that both parties and the children are aware of who they are staying with and when.
Whilst you may have an agreement in place with your ex-partner as to what the weekly arrangements are, the summer holidays and Christmas can often throw plans out of place.
Of course, you will want to see your children over Christmas, but maybe this does not fall on your days to have the children this year. Alternatively, maybe, you are looking to take the children away on holiday for a longer period in the summer. These are things to consider when it comes to looking at your child arrangements.
If you have an agreement in place, but want certainty that there will be no last minute changes over which you have no control, we can ensure that your agreement is embodies in a court order to make it legally binding. By making this agreement legally binding this would involve you and your ex-partner both signing off a “consent order” made by one of our solicitors and then sending this off to a judge to approve.
If you do not have any agreement in place, and you are struggling to negotiate dates, then you may need a judge to help resolve the issues and make an order to define the arrangements.
