There is nothing more precious than our children and their emotional and physical welfare. Fortunately it is rare for parents to be in dispute over their children. It is even more unusual for the state to intervene to remove a child. However, sometimes these things happen.
Disputes concerning children can present courts with the most challenging decisions of all. This area of the law covers a wide range. This includes disputes between parents over where a child should live through to applications by a social services department to take a child into care. It can include disputes relating to education, health, change of name and removing a child from the jurisdiction. In almost every case the child's welfare will be the courts paramount consideration.
