Experienced, award-winning child law and child custody solicitors

From issues around access and visitation to schooling, medical treatment and religion, we're committed to finding the right solutions, including when you need to stop a parent from acting without your consent or facilitate a specific course of action through a child arrangements order.

Providing for your children financially is a key consideration following parental separation and we can guide you in securing the best arrangements for your children including around child maintenance, school fees and capital and property orders.

We also deal with complex international issues relating to children. This includes relocation applications, advice upon jurisdiction and habitual residence, the cross-border enforcement of orders, mirror agreements in respect of international orders and international financial provision.

We also advise on the unlawful removal of children and child abduction cases.

In our search for guidance on a parentage claim, we were fortunate to find Joe Ailion — a true gem. His expertise and professionalism in Court matters were evident from the start… But it was his immediate response to our call for help that truly set him apart. Joe attentively listened to our story and addressed each of our concerns with a depth of understanding and empathy rarely seen in a solicitor. Beyond his unquestionable professional expertise, Joe brings a level of personal care and emotional intelligence to his work. His honest and straightforward advice, coupled with a genuine warmth, created a sense of security for our family during a tumultuous time. For us, Joe is not just a solicitor — he’s a beacon of hope and reassurance.
