finding amicable resolutions to parent disputes

Watson Thomas Solicitors are highly experienced in advising parents and acting on their behalf in relation to all legal matters concerning children.

As with much of our work, there is often an international element and we are accustomed to liaising with practitioners in other jurisdictions outside of the UK.

Disputes concerning children can relate to parental responsibility, residence (formerly custody), contact, financial provision and unlawful removal, and may involve jurisdictional issues.  We understand that disputes concerning children are distressing.

Our advice is designed to minimise upheaval and disruption and will always ensure that the child's welfare is the primary consideration.  In the first instance, we will seek to resolve matters by way of correspondence and mediation/collaboration but where that is not possible, then the Court provides an ideal forum to achieve a resolution.

child law issues we can assist with:

  • Change of name 
  • Court Orders for Children –
    Residence Orders, Contact Orders, Specific Issues and Prohibited Steps
  • Adoption and Surrogacy
  • Child Abduction
  • Child Molestation
  • Child Representation
  • Family Mediation

our family law services include:
