You and your spouse do not need to attend court if you can reach a custody agreement through negotiation. These discussions can be carried out with our help or through an appointed mediator, who will ensure that all decisions made are fair for all parties. However, if you cannot reach an agreement, you will need to go to court to settle the matter.
When negotiating the custody of a child, the following factors must be taken into consideration:
Once you have reached a fair agreement, a court consent order should be signed to confirm the agreement. This will ensure that both parents adhere to the conditions they negotiated.

If both parents cannot come to an agreement about child custody through negotiation, the case will be taken to court where a judge will make the final decision. The court will come to a decision based on what is best for the welfare of any children involved.
If the involvement of the court becomes necessary, there are three kinds of court order available:
After a divorce, both parents still assume financial responsibility for their children, regardless of any custody agreements. Typically, the non-resident parent will provide financial support to the resident parent. The amount of money that should be provided depends on the non-resident parent’s income. This payment is usually arranged between parents, but if they cannot come to an agreement, The Child Maintenance Service can help families make financial arrangements.

Honestly I would recommend PDA for any agency/landlord deposit dispute. Jane was such a dream to work with and she got me a good compensation. She was quick and responsive throughout the whole process as well as transparent. She kept me in the loop with all correspondence with the agency/landlord. She also knows her stuff. Would recommend PDA law.
It was our first time we dealt with PDA law for our conveyancing. We were recommended to them by the Property agency. We are glad we had a good experience with PDA law, especially during lockdowns and Christmas period. They made sure, they had all the paper-work in place with all searches done in time. They provided us with realistic timescales, so that there is no disappointment towards the end. Looking forward to deal with them in the near future.
