Children

At ORJ, we understand that your children mean the world to you and seeking specialist legal advice and representation is important to ensure that any disputes or disagreements concerning your children are resolved quickly, amicably and with minimal effect on them.

The ORJ Family Team are specialists in dealing with all aspects of private children law, including disputes over where the children will live and how much time they will spend with the other parent, grandparent’s rights and international disputes. We can also advise and represent you in more specific matters concerning your children such as relocation, changing their surname or school.

In all family matters, the child’s welfare is the paramount consideration and the law clearly states that a decision made in relation to a child should be based on what is in their best interests. Matters concerning children should be dealt with delicately and, at ORJ, we will always try to resolve disputes by way of negotiation or mediation, without going to Court, if possible.

However, sometimes the circumstances will mean that mediation or negotiation is not appropriate. If you are in a situation concerning your child which requires immediate action or your child’s safety or welfare is at risk, we are able to pursue urgent action to ensure that appropriate protective measures are in place to prevent this.

If it becomes necessary to pursue Court proceedings in matters concerning your children, you can count on our experienced child law specialists to advise you on the best approach to your case and provide you with strong representation at Court to ensure that you get the most favourable outcome for you and your children.
