Are you searching for Child Law advice Guildford and what we can do for you

Here at Gregorian Emerson Family Law Solicitors, we have many years of expertise in child law advice in Guildford and have an excellent reputation for enabling our clients to resolve these potentially difficult cases.  We fully understand the emotions surrounding issues of family law and how upsetting and challenging they can be.

This means that when you come to us for advice and support on any child law issues, you will always benefit from both a professional and sensitive service, which is completely unrivalled in maximising success through our unique joint legal and psychological approach.

Our primary objective, in any child law case, will be to help you and your partner work out both custody and access arrangements 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.  You may require advice on child arrangements post-divorce, where the children have expressed a wish to live with you, or you may need advice on how much contact your ex-partner should have with them.  We have extensive knowledge in all areas of child law and will be happy to discuss your particular situation with you and give you any advice you need.

As parents ourselves, we fully understand that there is nothing more important to you than the wellbeing of your precious children.  We also fully appreciate that it can be difficult to involve a professional in your personal and private matters, especially when they are not known to you and when it is involving someone so special to you.  You will want to select a child solicitor to guide you through your case who you can trust to fight for you as much as you would for yourself.  We absolutely pride ourselves on our unique legal and psychological approach to your case and we will very quickly understand what both your needs and those of your children are.  We will never assume anything. Instead we will always listen, very carefully, to what you actually want.  We also ensure that with each and every case you are dealt with as an individual, we don’t use a ‘tick box’ approach, after all no two cases are ever the same.

At Gregorian Emerson Family Law Solicitors, through our combined joint-legal psychological skill set, we not only have the capacity to provide the very highest quality of legal advice but, uniquely, are able to formulate and present a strategy to achieve the best results for our clients.

With many years of experience in this field we fully understand both how important it is and also in the best interests of the child, for disputes to be resolved outside of the court environment and our dedicated team will assist you to try and resolve the differences between you as amicably as possible.  We are able to provide a dedicated mediation service to help with family disputes where children are involved.  This has been shown to help the two parties to come to a consensual agreement and to be able to communicate effectively throughout the process.  This enables the two parties to be able to continue communicating successfully into the future too, which can only be a good thing for the children involved.  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.  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.

It is also worth remembering that when a Court is considering any matters concerning the upbringing of a child, the child’s welfare is always its paramount consideration.  Prior to you making any decisions that may have legal ramifications, some of which may not be for many years down the line, we will discuss all options available to you fully and in depth.  We will ensure you fully understand each option and what the consequences of each are, before you make an informed choice on how to proceed.  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 continued 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 in Guildford queries you may have.
