Expert legal assistance in child affairs

When the parents of a child divorce, the most important and most difficult issues to be resolved are child custody and matters related to the child’s living arrangements, maintenance, and access rights. In the best case, the parents manage to agree between themselves on these matters. However, in some cases they are unable to find common ground, and when this happens it is important to seek expert legal assistance to resolve the situation.

Courts can provide a ruling on applications for child custody, living arrangements and access rights. An alternative to litigation in child affairs is child conciliation, which aims at finding an amicable resolution between the parents together with the conciliator, special assistant and other assistants. Conciliation is a much less burdensome, faster and less expensive means of resolving child-related disputes than traditional litigation.

With the help of experts, the conciliation process very often enables the parents to find a mutually satisfactory arrangement that takes account of the best interests of the child. Court proceedings, on the other hand, are adversarial situations that create “winners” and “losers”.
