At Banner Jones we provide expert advice on how to cope with a divorce if you have children.

You know your children better than anyone else and as a parent you are best placed to make the important decisions for them, but there may be times you need more advice and support regarding children and divorce.

If you have children and you are getting divorced, separating or your cohabitation is breaking up we can advise you on a wide range of issues relating to children.

As far as possible, we can help you reach an amicable agreement which is always based upon what is in the children’s best interests. However, where necessary, we can apply to the courts to appropriate orders.
