Child custody solicitors

Birkett Long has experienced child custody solicitors who can help with general advice on problems relating to access and custody, admission and exclusion of pupils in education, or dealing with adoption both in this country and abroad.

Birkett Long also deals with applications to prevent parents from taking a child to live in a new country to Specific Issue Orders dealing with which school a child should attend. These applications can also include relocation, both in England and Wales, and abroad.

Our solicitors have a reputation for being both able and committed, which is demonstrated by the volume of work referred to us by children's guardians, local authorities, adoption agencies and other professional colleagues.

  • Adoption, including step-parent adoption
  • Children disputes including with whom a child should live and with whom they should spend time
  • Special Guardianship
  • Relocation of children internally and internationally
  • Change of Name Deeds

We are an approachable, friendly team, seeing each client as an individual rather than a file number. Client care is important to us, as is providing a sympathetic and understanding approach at a difficult time. However, we never shy from giving firm, realistic advice.

Our lawyers are acknowledged specialists in all aspects of children’s cases. This includes a Resolution accredited expert in children matters.
