What type of issue can a child law solicitors in Chester help me to take care of?

The kinds of cases which involve elements of child law are hugely diverse, and include both civil and criminal law. Children law solicitors from Chester are able to offer specialist legal services on a number of difficult problems. A few of the most frequent areas of assistance includes the following:

  • Child Custody - Child custody laws establish who is responsible for the care and maintenance of a child following the breakup or separation of a parental relationship. The term residency is regularly used in the same way as custody to reflect the law’s need to establish the main residency of a child following the separation of their parents. Joint custody allows a child to divide their time equally between both parents. In joint custody arrangements, both parents are able to make decisions affecting their child. If parents are not able to amicably make arrangements regarding their child following a break-up, the courts will decide on their behalf.
  • Parental Responsibility - Parental responsibility is automatically received by all mothers and most fathers on the birth of their child, and this sets out the parents’ responsibilities and legal rights. Those who have parental responsibility have the following legal duties: To provide a home, discipline, education and protection for the child, take care of the child’s belongings and agree to treatment that the child may need. Parents need to financially support their children, whether they have parental responsibility or not.
  • Child Maintenance - Child maintenance is used to support the financial expense of raising a child and is usually made through regular payments. Child maintenance can be arranged privately by parents, through a government scheme or through a court order. Both parents are legally responsible for the financial costs of raising the children and if they separate, the parent who is not responsible for the main day-to-day care of the child will normally be required to pay money to the predominant care parent of the child.
  • Prohibitive Steps Order - Prohibited Steps Orders (PSOs) are granted by the court in order to prevent a parent from carrying out certain acts. This includes making specific trips with their children without having the prior consent of the other parent. A PSO is often granted when there is a concern that one parent may leave the area with their child.
  • Adoption - Adoption gives children who cannot be brought up by their biological parents the opportunity to be part of a new, permanent family. Only children under the age of 18 who have not been previously married or in a civil partnership can be adopted. In most circumstances, the child’s biological parents give consent to the adoption unless they cannot be found, the adoption is on the basis of the child’s safety or the birth parents are incapable of giving consent.
