Child Law

Family Law

Specialists in child matters

If your relationship is ending, it is common for disputes over the arrangement for children to occur. Giles Wilson can provide a comprehensive service to resolve any dispute, ensuring children aren't affected more than they have to be.

When you're separating, you don't want your children exposed or involved in it. But you also need to make sure they get the best care possible. At Giles Wilson, we can provide a comprehensive service to resolve any dispute involving children, helping to ensure that children can grow up in a safe and caring environment and develop good relationships with both parents after a separation.

Our family solicitors are members of Resolution and accredited by the Law Society Family Law Panel and can provide expert advice on any private issues. If you have a residence dispute – whether it is over holiday contact, or contact with a parent they are no longer living with – we can mediate, advise on applications to court and provide guidance on the checklist used by courts. We can also provide specialist advice on CAFCASS, liaising with them if needed.

We can also help with more specific issues. These can be disputes over specific issues of any kind, from the child's religion to their education or medical treatment. This also includes advice and action on prohibited steps, if you wish to prevent anything specific happening to your child, from being taken out of the country or being given specific medical treatment. And if you're a third party, whether a grandparent, uncle or aunt, we can act on your behalf helping to get the result you desire.
