Residence Orders

Residence Orders in St Helens

For many couples child custody is the most pressing issue following the breakdown of their relationship or marriage and while custody can be distressing to discuss, having a dedicated legal professional on hand can make the process easier to deal with.

At Hattons we have successfully helped thousands of couples to come to agreement over child custody and parental rights. To speak to someone about your situation call 0800 298 9690 or use our online form to request a call back.


During our many years working in the legal sector we have seen that couples who have parted ways amicably can often resolve child custody disputes using mediation.

Our family law solicitor and accredited panel specialist, Deb Choudhuri, is a member of Resolution and The Law Society and has a wealth of mediation experience.

We can arrange mediation sessions for you and your partner if required.

Residence Orders

If you do decide to go through the courts – which should be as a last resort – then a Residence Order will be sought. These orders stipulate where a child will live and often, residence is split between the parents of a child, as it is considered the best option for most children.

At Hattons we also recognise that other family members – grandparents, aunts, uncles – may be involved in residency disputes and we can deal with even the most complex cases.
