Mark Eyles: I am a Partner with the Firm and qualified as a Solicitor in 2002. I practice exclusively in Family Law and am a Resolution Accredited Specialist.

I have extensive experience in all areas of Family Law and have a particular expertise in dealing with cases involving substantial and complex assets. I adopt a constructive and practical approach to my work whilst ensuring my clients' interests are protected. I have dealt with many cases involving complex disputes regarding children and am a confident advocate at Court.

I am an Accredited Specialist in cases involving children and domestic abuse.  I have advised in both cases where there have been complex factual disputes and appeals relating to children.

I understand the emotional, financial and practical difficulties that clients and children experience upon relationship breakdown. At Jackson West we pride ourselves in giving our clients an excellent service whilst striving to achieve the results they want.

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with my partner and children; watching cricket, football and Rugby Union and if I have any spare time, playing cricket, football and running.

Arrangements for Children

When parents separate, only a minority go to the family court to help make decisions about when they see their children or who their children should live with and yet after a split these can be the most bitterly argued over issues.

The Children Act 1989 is there to give paramount consideration to the welfare of the child or children. So if you can't agree on contact arrangements amicably as parents, there are steps you can take but it is important to take legal advice.

If you are seeking contact with your child after a separation you can apply to the Court for a child arrangements order, similarly, if you are trying to prevent an ex-partner having contact with your children, perhaps because of welfare concerns, you can mount a legal opposition to the granting of any child arrangements order.

If you already have an order yet your ex-partner is still making it very difficult for you to have contact with your children, you can ask a solicitor or mediator to help you enforce the contact order.

Sometimes arrangements about who a child will live with or see are agreed but there is a dispute between parents about a specific issue, for example what school a child will attend or whether a child should have a medical procedure. We can assist in trying to resolve such an issue.

If there is a dispute about who a child should live we can assist you in making an application to the Court to determine this. When determining such applications, the Court will consider what is in the best interests of the child.

Our specialist team has extensive experience in acting in such applications. We have three Children Panel Lawyers and a Resolution Accredited Specialist together with an in-house barrister.
