Farrer & Co is a main player in the field of family law, having done some excellent work.  A significant part of its practice comprises disputes relating to children, including relocation cases and emergency residence applications.

Legal 500

All cases where children are involved require a high level of sensitivity, discretion and specialist knowledge, and our family experts have years of experience in this particular field. No matter what the complexity or background to the case, we will always seek to gain a clear understanding of the issues before seeking a child-focused, practical and workable solution.

We advise on all private law matters involving children, such as the time a child spends with each of his or her parents (and possibly other relations), which school he or she should go to, and other practical matters, as well as situations where one parent wishes to move abroad with a child.

Our reputation is for minimising stress and resolving the most complex of family matters. Throughout the process you will have a dedicated family partner as your main contact, always accessible, to give you regular updates and answer any questions in the strictest of confidence.
