Family Law FAQ’s
We offer advice and services that relate to:
The process usually takes between 4-8 months. We offer a fixed fee divorce so you know exactly how much it will cost from the outset.
As a grandparent, you are entitled to make an application to the court concerning your grandchildren to resolve living arrangements, arrange to spend time with your grandchildren or for any other relevant issues. We can help you to make the best application possible. Any application is judged on its merits taking into account both parents views.
Mothers automatically have parental responsibility for their children. Married parents have joint parental responsibility. If the partners are not married, only the mother has parental responsibility. An unmarried father can acquire parental responsibility by being registered as the child’s birth certificate with the consent of the mother, by entering into a parental responsibility agreement or by applying to court. If you require any advice in this area, our solicitors at Oliver & Co can assist you.
