Fathers being Denied Contact with their Children

One of the most common legal issues facing fathers following a relationship breakdown is the denial of access to their children.  If your former partner is refusing to allow you to see your children we have the expertise and experience to ensure you and the rights of your child are protected.

Our family law team is headed by Nighat Sultana, who is a Solicitor and Director. Other members of the team include Christine Rawsthorne who previously worked in a Legal 500 practice, specialising as a family lawyer and Elaine Collins who is an experienced Solicitor and a strong advocate.  Christine qualified as a Mediator in 2012, and both Christine and Elaine are members of Resolution, which is a panel of Family Lawyers dedicated to resolving family cases as constructively and amicably as possible.  

One of the most common complaints of fathers caught up in the family law system is that no one truly listens to them and their needs.  When fighting for your rights as a father, Nighat and her team will take the time to hear your story, and advise you on the best course of action to restore your parental rights.

Unmarried Fathers Rights

In general terms, a mother is deemed to have "parental responsibility" for her children whether or not she is married to the father.  For births registered in England or Wales; as a father you have parental responsibility if:

• The child's birth was registered on or after 1st December 2003, and you are named on the birth certificate as the father.

• If the child was born before that time with no father listed on the birth certificate, but the birth was later re-registered with you named as the father.

• If you and the child's mother sign a Parental Responsibility Agreement.

• If you marry the child's mother.

• If the Court grants you an Order giving you parental responsibility.

If you have separated from the mother of your child/children and need legal advice to establish where you stand in relation to Child Arrangement Orders and contact with your children, Nighat and her team can work with you to reach an amicable solution with your ex-partner.

Why Choose Us?

If you are concerned about the care arrangements made for your children or feel you are being denied contact or excluded from making decisions surrounding their schooling or where they reside, then we will fight in your corner to ensure your wishes are heard.  By engaging our family law team to assert your rights as a father, you can be confident that any issues you have will be resolved as expediently as possible.

Testimonials

'My friends, the Patel family, were referred to Harminder Meht of Sultan Lloyd in September 2013.  We met Harminder when circumstances were very challenging and Harminder explained the available options very clearly, helpfully and with evident empathy and understanding.  Thereafter she and her colleagues helped us at every step including securing legal aid despite the fact that a previous solicitor had not identified that this was possible. Harminder was instrumental in securing the release from detention of one member of the family and following a difficult judicial review process she obtained a Home Office decision that allows the family leave to remain in the UK, to work and study here for the next 30 months. We are all delighted with Harminder and Sultan Lloyd and we are very happy to recommend Harminder and Sultan Lloyd to future users of their services.'
