Separated parents – have you sorted child arrangements for the Christmas period?

28 Nov 2018 | Under Latest News | Posted by | 0 Comments

Christmas is fast approaching, and it is not always a happy time for everyone. Some parents are, for various reasons, unable to spend time with their children on the main days of the Christmas holiday, or even at all. 

In such difficult circumstances, it is advisable to agree where your children will stay or how much time you are allocated with them. 

Sometimes coming to an agreement can be difficult. In these situations, you may seek the assistance of a mediator. Mediation can be an excellent forum for achieving the best arrangements for your children. The starting point to successful mediation is both parents accepting that there is a problem that needs to be resolved and both parents wishing to do something to resolve the problem. If mediation is unsuccessful, it is advisable to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
