What type of issue can a London child law solicitor help take care of?

The types of cases which involve components of children law are massively varied, and can include both criminal and civil law. Children law solicitors from London will be able to provide you with expert legal services on a variety of difficult matters. A few of the more common areas of assistance include:

  • Child Custody - The maintenance and charge of a child following the break-up of a parental relationship is set out in child custody laws. The term custody is often referred to as residency which reflects the need to establish a child’s main residence following a parental breakup. Joint custody allows a child to divide their time equally between both parents. Joint custody also allows for both parents to make decisions affecting the child. A court order will be required if parents are not able to amicably make decisions regarding their children following a break-up.
  • Parental Responsibility - Parental responsibility refers to the legal rights and responsibilities of parents and all mothers and most fathers automatically have this responsibility. Parental responsibility means that parents 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 are legally obliged to financially support their child, irrespective of whether they have parental responsibility or not.
  • Child Maintenance - Child maintenance is used to support the financial costs of raising a child and usually takes the form of regular payments. Parents are able to arrange child maintenance payments privately, through a government scheme or in complex situations, through a court order. There is a legal duty for both parents to financially support their child as it is being raised and if the parents separate, the parent who is not responsible for the normal day-to-day care of the child usually pays money to the other parent to support the upbringing.
  • Prohibitive Steps Order - A Prohibited Steps Order (PSO) can be granted by the court in order to prevent a parent from carrying out specific acts. This includes making certain trips with a child without having prior agreement from the other parent. A PSO is often granted when there is a concern that one parent may leave the area with their child.
  • Adoption - Children who cannot be raised by their birth parents may be adopted, and this means that they can join a new and permanent family. To be eligible for adoption, children must be under the age of 18 and not be married or in a civil partnership. Consent from the birth parents is normally required for the adoption to go ahead, unless they cannot be found, they are incapable of giving consent or their consent is deemed as an unsafe pursuit for the child.
