Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A Child Arrangements Order is a legal decree issued by a Court when parents cannot reach an agreement regarding the living arrangements and contact with their child. These orders specify each parent’s time with the child and determine the child’s primary residence.

To obtain parental responsibility for an adopted child, someone with existing parental responsibility, such as the biological mother, must appoint you as the child’s new guardian.

Yes, it is possible to lose parental responsibility, particularly in cases of adoption. When a child is adopted, the parental responsibility of the biological parent(s) is terminated.

To regain custody of your child, you must convince the court that it is in the child’s best interest to be in your care. Providing compelling evidence is crucial, and you must demonstrate that there are no safety concerns for the child in your custody.

Yes, we can assist parents seeking full custody of their daughters. Our child custody solicitors are experienced in helping mothers and fathers secure custody under UK child custody laws. If you believe the other parent is unfit to care adequately for your child, we can guide you through the process.

Yes, fathers can obtain sole custody of their child in the UK, primarily if they have acknowledged paternity and can demonstrate a strong relationship with their child. UK child custody laws have evolved to support single fathers.

In custody cases, the court’s primary consideration is the child’s best interests. It is essential to focus on the child’s welfare rather than seeking revenge on a former partner. The court evaluates factors such as the strength of the parent-child relationship, attendance at key events, consistent child maintenance payments, and providing a safe and comfortable living environment for the child.

We are dedicated to helping you navigate the complexities of child custody in the UK. If you have further questions or need legal assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Axis Solicitors.
