LEGAL INFORMATION SERVICES 
CHILD MATTERS

DO YOU NEED SUPPORT OR INFORMATION ON LEGAL MATTERS BUT HAVE NO SOLICITOR?
We can provide support with the following child related matters:

  • Understanding your rights as a parent and exercising your parental responsibility


  • Parental Alienation


  • Domestic Violence & Abuse


  • Understanding court processes where child matters are concerned


  • What to do if Children's Services have become involved in your family


  • Legal Administration including Position Statements, Witness Statements and

    Completion and Submission of Court Forms


  • Information on Prohibited Steps Orders, Specific Issue Orders and Non-Molestation Orders


  • Advice on Child Arrangement Orders (we cannot make child arrangement orders for you but can discuss the process with you and help you to consider what needs to be included)

  • Information and advice on things to consider if you are representing yourself in court.


Please note that we are NOT Solicitors but have appropriate legal training and years of experience supporting families in crisis and working in partnership with CAFCASS (The Family Court), Children's Services and The Civil Mediation Council. 

This service is ideal for anyone who is having a dispute over child access or arrangements or dealing with parental alienation and does not currently have legal representation. The costs will be much lower than those of a solicitor but in some cases we may refer you to another service or suggest you involve a solicitor or other legal service.

*Please note if you are receiving mediation from Midway Mediation some of these services may be unavailable as Mediation is an impartial service that requires us not to take sides with either party.
