Child Arrangements:

When considering child arrangements, the court’s paramount consideration is that of the welfare of a child.

In order to determine what is in the best interest of a child the court will consider the welfare checklist which includes the wishes and feelings (where appropriate) of a child, the child/ren’s needs, the likely effect of any change in circumstances etc.
