Our highly trained solicitors can guide you through the Court Order process.

Applying to the court is often seen as the last resort because you can only apply to the court when you have ensured that all avenues of amicable agreement have been exhausted. You cannot issue an application without first attempting, or being assessed for, mediation. It is important to remember that a court battle can be a long drawn out series of hearings and, throughout this, your children will be aware of what is happening. They may have to speak to the Court welfare officer (Cafcass officer) during this time, too.
