There's no question about it: your children are the most important thing in your life. But if you have gone through a messy divorce, your relationship with your children may become strained if you have to deal with a toxic ex. Your ex may bad-mouth you in front of the kids, accuse you of being a bad parent, and even attempt to replace you in the children's lives with a new partner. As a result, your children may become confused, conflicted, angry, anxious, or depressed-and you may feel powerless.
Representation of parents in the family court has long been the preserve of solicitors and barristers.

However, over recent years accessibility to receive legal aid has become far more restrictive, which has lead to numerous parents finding themselves between a rock and a hard place.
