Residence Support of Children
Helping You Secure Residence Support Of Your Children
Where your child or children will live following a divorce, dissolution, separation or annulment will naturally be of paramount importance to you – and us. As qualified and committed family lawyers, we do everything in our power to support parents on reaching a residence support agreement without the need to involve the courts.
A Residence Order sets out where, when and with which parent your child lives. The designated parent then has responsibility for making the day-to-day decisions relating to child care and upbringing. There are times when the Residence Order is shared with both parents, with the Order specifying when the child spends time in each home.
This Order lasts until the child is 16. In reaching the agreement or if court intervention is necessary, there are various factors which should be taken into consideration including the child’s wishes, age, wellbeing, and how able each parent is to provide for the child. Most of our clients have been able to reach a satisfactory arrangement for them and their children between themselves, with our legal guidance, expertise and support. When court intervention is unavoidable, we advise clients at every step of the process to minimise anxiety and maximise the chances of a positive outcome.
