Divorce and agreeing arrangements for children
In terms of a divorce it is a very separate issue from the children themselves. A divorce will dissolve your marriage by granting a Decree Absolute. In terms of custody of the children, there is no such term nowadays as custody, it is referred to as child arrangements. There is no automatic presumption of what those arrangements will be. You will either need to agree them between yourselves or if you are having difficulties please contact us and see what we can do to help. If you can’t agree arrangements between you then the alternative is that we could advise you on applying to the Court for something called a child arrangements order.
