Rose & Rose
Child Law Solicitors
Rose & Rose are here to help separated parents reach a middle ground as soon as possible, especially regarding child-related issues. We ideally prefer any disputes to be solved without the need to get to Court proceedings. If matters cannot be resolved in this way, we help you take the necessary steps to apply to the court for a Specific Issue Order. In either instance, we provide expert advice throughout the entire process. Our experienced and understanding team are here to help you. We will work with you to ensure the best possible outcome.
Disputes involving children can be a stressful experience for parents and children involved. Our experienced Family Law Solicitors consider the importance of the cooperation between parents and willingness to put children’s needs first to minimise the impact of separation on them and consider non-court-based solutions for solutions such as collaborative law or court-based litigation. We also follow the notion that constructive advice should be given at an early stage, especially if there are matters of abuse or violence at hand.
Specific Issue Orders
A Specific Issue Order is an Order that enables the court to resolve a dispute that arises relating to a parent’s exercise of Parental Responsibility for a child. It does not give one parent general power; it instead decides over one issue where there is a dispute. For further information, please visit our Child Arrangement and Child Maintenance pages.
In circumstances where parents are separated, there could be issues that could arise regarding parenting. These issues of conflict can occur when making decisions about the child’s welfare. These decisions can range from the medical treatment provided to the child, relocation, the religion of the child, or the school the child should be attending. The potential of conflict arising is not limited to these decisions, but in any case, it may be possible to apply to the court for a specific issue order.
Our Specialist Family Law solicitors have had extensive experience in handling Specific Issue Orders and will provide you with the best advice possible to resolve the dispute. In every case, we help you to reach a solution that’s in the best interests of your children.

Our Child Law Services
At Rose & Rose, we acknowledge that all arrangements regarding children after the breakdown of a relationship are best decided without court intervention. It is not always possible for the separated or divorced parent to agree over living arrangements or the appropriate level of financial support. Both parents have the legal responsibility to look after their children until they are 18 years old or have left full-time education.
The court will usually intervene if the parents cannot agree on arrangements. However, mediation must be considered as the first option.
If you have suffered from domestic violence, or your child is at risk of abuse, then you may be able to apply for Legal Aid to meet the costs of your legal fees. If you are not eligible, we have many free options available, which we can discuss during your free initial telephone consultation.
This is a complex area of the law and requires expert advice. Please call our specialist Child Law Solicitors now or contact us online for advice about your specific child law issue. We can provide you with a fixed fee for this service, so you will know exactly what costs you will need to pay.
