A child has the right to spend time with both parent’s and it is important to put the best interests of the child first when a relationship breaks down. It is of course desirable to reach an amicable agreement between both parties regarding contact with children. However, in reality disputes often arise. Such conflict can be damaging to children and should be resolved without delay.
If such a dispute arises our family law solicitor’s can make an application to the Court for contact on your behalf. The specifics of the contact granted by the Judge will depend on each applicant’s individual circumstances and will always aim to put the best interests of the child at the centre of any decision.
How We Can Help
At PA Duffy and Company our dedicated family law team are vastly experienced in dealing with matters of child contact. We offer mediation services to ensure that Court Orders are being observed. In the event of non compliance with an Order we can advise you on the best solution, this may include holding the party who has breached the Contact Order in contempt of court.
We also understand that it is in the best interest of the child to avoid court proceedings. Therefore, we also offer mediation services which can often be an effective way to come to an agreement in respect of contact.
