    Agreeing the arrangements for children after a divorce


    My partner and I have separated and we have three children. Can we agree the arrangements for the children or do we need to go to court?

    Parents are always encouraged to reach an agreement on arrangements for their children, without having to resort to court proceedings.

    If this can’t be done, mediation is often helpful. This straightforward and professionally conducted process also enables you to reach an agreement without without having to go to court.

    There will be times, though, when no agreement can be reached and the only way to sort out arrangements for the children is through formal court proceedings.

    The children’s best interests are always paramount in the court’s deliberations and it may take into account the children’s wishes and feelings, depending on their age.
