Children (private law)

29 Bedford Row is a recognised leader in the field of private children law. 

Our work encompasses residence and contact disputes, including those where contact has broken down and where serious allegations of abuse are made; domestic as well as international relocation applications; parental order proceedings; surrogacy; fertility; private law adoptions; disputes over schooling, medical treatment, name-change and other aspects of parental responsibility; urgent cases requiring injunctions; wardship and use of the inherent jurisdiction.

As on the financial side, chambers’ private children law work regularly sees our members acting for high profile individuals and in legally important cases.
