You’ll need to make arrangements for your children if you split up from your partner.
A court won’t let you divorce or dissolve a civil partnership until you can show you’ve arranged things like:
- where the children will live
- when they’ll spend time with each parent
- who’ll pay child maintenance
You’ll usually need to prove that you’ve considered mediation before you go to court.
