In divorce and family law, what is best for a child’s welfare will be the paramount deciding factor for the court in cases involving the upbringing of children. This is often referred to as the ‘welfare principle’. When using the welfare principle the court will have particular regard for things like the child’s feelings in light of their age, their emotional and educational needs, any harm suffered or the risk of suffering and how capable each of the parents is – or indeed any other relative the court considers relevant. A court will only make an order with regards to a child if it considers that by making an order it would be better for the child than making no order at all.
Divorce cases involving children can be incredibly complicated, and the services of a specialist solicitor can aid your case enormously.
