We can help you with Child Law advice based in Guildford, Surrey.


At Gregorian Emerson Family Law Solicitors Guildford, we have extensive experience in child law advice and in helping our clients to resolve these potentially difficult cases. When you come to us for advice and support on child law issues, you will benefit from a professional and sensitive service which is completely unrivalled in maximising success through our unique joint legal and psychological approach.

Our primary objective in child law cases will be to help both you and your partner work out a custody and access arrangement that will enable both your child’s welfare and stability to be maintained as effectively as possible.  By working with you and your partner, we will assist you in a sensitive manner to negotiate an arrangement that benefits everyone in your family.

How we can help you with Child Arrangements.

It is usually in the best interests of the child for disputes to be resolved outside of the courts and our dedicated team can assist you to try and resolve your differences as amicably as possible. We provide a dedicated Mediation service to help with Family Disputes where children are involved. This can help the two parties to come to a consensual agreement and to be able to communicate effectively throughout the process. However, unfortunately not all disputes are able to be resolved without the assistance of the courts and should this be the case, our experienced lawyers can make the appropriate applications to the court and will represent, support and guide you throughout the court proceedings.

When a Court is considering any matters concerning the upbringing of a child, the child’s welfare is always its paramount consideration.

The Courts will only get involved in sorting out child arrangements as a last resort. They recognise that it is far better for the parents themselves to come to a consensual agreement that they will each abide by, to ensure stability and continuity for their child.  As highly experienced lawyers in this field we are best placed to help and support you with any child law advice Guildford queries you may have.

If you cannot agree with your ex-partner on arrangements for your children, we will negotiate with them, and initiate and support you. Our testimonials really do speak for themselves.

We Have Expertise In

•    Residence
•    Contact
•    Child arrangement orders
•    Relocation (leave to remove)
•    Communication and conflict resolution, which is key in any child dispute
•    Mental health, including issues of clinical psychology, psychiatry
