Child Law

McAlister Family Law is home to one of the leading Children Law teams in the country. Many firms say they specialise in this delicate and often emotional area of the law, but in truth have neither the in- house expertise nor accreditations to advise appropriately. We do. McAlister Family Law has a dedicated Children Law department, offering you years of experience in advising and representing parents, children, grandparents and step-parents; we are known as leaders in this field. Our solicitors are both Resolution and Law Society Accredited Children Law specialists and advise not only in relation to disputes in the United Kingdom but also in those with an international element.

As a firm, we are passionate about the welfare of children and this is demonstrated by the specialist work that we do and by the support we give to various relevant community and charity initiatives. At the first meeting, our specialist team will work with you to identify your concerns and priorities and will advise as to a robust strategy to obtain the best possible outcomes for you and your children. We will also introduce you to our children and family support service, which can help effectively with everything from identifying a third party to assist with your case, to suggesting a list of books to help you and your children cope with a separation or divorce.
