Parents & Family Disputes

You may be straight, you may be gay or bi or trans or gender fluid or non- binary or gender neutral. You may be married or in a civil partnership or not. You may be in a relationship, or in more than one relationship or in a relationship with more than one person or not. You may be a parent or not. But if you are a parent, you are part of that vibrant mélange that makes modern families what they are.

We offer two bespoke sets of services for parents:

  • Creating Your Modern Family for Parents; and
  • Resolving Modern Family Disputes.

Each of these services are delivered by our specialist family lawyers with expertise and empathy.

Creating Your Modern Family for Parents

Creating Your Modern Family for Parents is about creating or adding to your modern family by:

  • Adoption
  • Assisted conception
  • Surrogacy

If you are a in a blended family, are a co-parent, or step-parent you may also find these pages helpful.

Creating your Modern Family for Parents is about agreement and collaboration between you and people you love and trust. It is about what we can do to help you put your shared vision for your family into legal reality.


Resolving Modern Family Disputes

Resolving Modern Family Disputes is about what to do when things don’t go as planned, for example you separate from your partner and don’t agree about where the children should live or your ex-partner wants to move abroad with your child, or an adoption breaks down. We strongly believe that it is always better to keep talking and keep trying to resolve things rather than start a battle, if it can be avoided. However, rest assured that we will robustly pursue your case if negotiation doesn’t work.

Resolving Modern Family Disputes includes:

  • Abduction & International Family Law
  • Adoption
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Care Proceedings
  • Change of Name
  • Child Arrangements Order
  • Parental Responsibility
  • Prohibited Steps Order
  • Relocation
  • Specific Issue Order
  • Surrogacy
  • Wardship & Inherent Jurisdiction

Our specialist family lawyers will advise, represent and support you through any contested family proceedings. Our service will be bespoke. Our aim will be to secure the outcome you seek without destroying family relationships along the way.
