Child Law Lawyers in St Helens

When it comes to family and child law, the issues can be complex and often emotional and so choosing the right solicitor to help is essential.

At Hattons Solicitors we can help you if you are a parent, grandparent or other family member to deal with family and child law issues that may happen. We will help to explain your rights and the law relating to them.

Types of Child Law Issues

Some of the types of issues we can help with include:

  • Where children should live, for example when parents separate or divorce
  • Child access or contact
  • Parental responsibility
  • Removal from the country
  • Child abduction issues
  • Paternity disputes
  • Prohibited Steps Order
  • Grandparents Rights
  • Step-parents Rights

Our solicitors are experienced in dealing with all kinds of family and child law issues, and often try to resolve issues without the need for Court proceedings, to make sure that the impact on children is as small as possible.

The Law is Focused on the Rights of the Children

The law is focused on the rights of the children, rather than those of the parents. With this in mind it is always important to consider what is in the best interests of the children, although we understand that personal feelings are hard to put aside.

Through our experience we know that mediation can be a useful tool sometimes to resolve matters, and we can arrange for you to have access to this service.
