Sometimes when parents are involved in a dispute over children it can be hugely combative and emotionally charged.  Due to this, it can be difficult to be child focused in the difficult decisions that have to be made. 


A guide to the process of step parent adoption.


This is a very common issue that we encounter and advise upon regularly.  We also get the same question asked by the person thinking of moving: “can my ex can stop me moving away with our children?” 


Our co-parenting couple move ahead with their plans.


One of our amazing Trusted Partners Dr Charlotte Harkness has written a fantastic blog post for us this week on the subject of conversations with children when relationships break down. 

This is a very difficult area, and one that we are often asked about.  Charlotte’s blog helps parents to talk to their children about this difficult subject openly and mindfully, in a way that both child and parent can manage.



If your child or children live for some or all of the time with somebody else, can that person stop you from seeing your child?  Parental disputes regarding contact or residence arrangements for children are common, but what solutions are available?

Ever since I had been involved in a number of the seminal LGBT family cases, I wanted to have the legal firm that The Modern Family Law Company is. I had often talked about it but could not easily see how it could become a reality.
