Hughes Fowler Carruthers provides clients with sensitive, considered advice on a range of legal issues relating to children.
When parents separate, disputes over children can centre on a range of issues, from a child’s living arrangements, education, religious upbringing, medical treatment and financial provision to international relocation and declarations of parentage. The partners at Hughes Fowlers Carruthers have unparalleled experience in handling such issues.
We support alternative and non-confrontational methods of dispute resolution, including mediation and round the table meetings. Where necessary, however, we will take court proceedings, including emergency action.
Our specialism in children related issues forms a key part of our international practice, alongside our expertise on international relocation of children as well as international child abduction, international adoption and international surrogacy.
Hughes Fowler Carruthers has advised a significant number of same sex parents, and the firm as a whole is highly knowledgeable in this area, including surrogacy.
The lawyers at Hughes Fowler Carruthers always act in a way which recognises the emotional complexity of children’s matters. Above all, we believe that the welfare of any children who are the subject of legal proceedings is of paramount importance.
