Sinclairslaw is regularly instructed in respect of private law child applications under the Children Act 1989. The firm frequently acts for parents and extended family members in disputes over where children will live , appropriate contact, parental responsibility, removal from the jurisdiction and special guardianship orders. The firm also deals with matters in relation to specific orders to a child namely disputes between parents over where the child should attend school, etc.

We all think of child related disputes in terms of fighting for custody or access, but the Court now term these issues Child Arrangements Orders. Essentially both Suzanne Thomas and Jane Williams are highly experienced in what we think of as Child Custody Disputes and indeed ensuring both parents establish appropriate access or contact with their child or children.

Although Legal Aid, or indeed Public Funding, as it is now termed, is no longer available for these types of private law disputes, the court procedures have now become far more streamlined and indeed quicker, where effective legal action is taken, so it literally pays to seek expert advice at an early stage.

We are always able to provide clear and transparent information about our professional charges. We can offer Fixed Fees in our Cardiff and Penarth Offices, or you can instruct us on a time related basis. We do not charge for explaining our professional services and or providing information on likely costs involved.

We do not though provide ad hoc free legal advice, free half hour legal advice consultations, or indeed free legal advice limited to those whose former partner meets a criteria of affluence.

We believe expert professional advice is of significant value and that ultimately you will benefit from choosing a top quality family law service where the costs you are likely to incur, are properly explained at the outset and will ensure you get value for your money.

If you need advice in relation to any aspect of concern you have in respect of any issue or problem concerning your children then do telephone us or send your email enquiry to a senior Family Law Specialist at the most convenient office location for you.
