Custody & Maintenance

As family lawyers, with expertise in areas such as custody and child access rights, financial maintenance arrangements, child abduction in The Gambia and internationally, Solie Law can help you sort out any issues you have in relation to child contact and residence.

“Residence” refers to where a child will live when their parents separate or divorce.  “Contact”, as the name suggests, refers to specified contact that the parent without residence has with the child. 

Some families manage to be extremely flexible and do not require the input of the court.  On the other hand, matters often become so fraught that some families need the court to set out specific dates and times for contact.

Child Maintenance and Financial Provision

The rules setting out how much financial support you must pay or are entitled to receive vary greatly from country to country. Getting this right has huge financial implications for the parties concerned.

‘Access’ (Visitation) and ‘Custody’ (Residence) of Children

Will you be entitled to see your children? Is the local court likely to permit the children to live with you? Attitudes vary dramatically from country to country. The position of a foreigner can be especially complicated, particularly if they are in dispute with a local person.

Child Abduction (Child Snatch)

This most distressing of situations needs a rapid response from someone who understands the law and procedures in the country where you are living, the country from which the child was taken and the country where the other party resides.
