Children Law

The relevant legislation for the welfare of a child is the Children (NI) Order 1995. This order seeks to protect the welfare of the child. You can apply to the Court for what is known as Article 8 Orders under this legislation whereby you are asking the Court to help assist or decide on the best interests of a child.

We at Chambers Solicitors have a vast wealth of experience in these types of cases and we can offer you sensible and appropriate advice for the best Article 8 Order suited to your needs. Such Article 8 Orders may be:


  • Contact Order on behalf of a Mother or Father
  • Residence Order on behalf of a Mother or Father
  • Parental Responsibility Order
  • Specific Issue Order
  • Prohibited Steps Order
  • Grandparents Contact
  • Care Proceedings


We have also assisted many clients over the years in Private Adoption and Adoption of Children in Care.

This is an emotional and difficult time and we believe that you should be walked through this sensibly and carefully.
