headingChild Law


Every child that is of such an age, maturity and stage of development as to be able to participate in any matter concerning that child, has the right to participate in an appropriate way.

Views expressed by the child must be given due consideration. Children also has the right to be assisted to bring matters to court.  This however does not mean that children has the responsibility to take decisions or chose their own primary residence or contact regime.

In any matter where a child is involved, the best interest of the child is of paramount importance.

Endriette Barnard Attorneys focus on the best interest of children in any matter that we take on and we will do our best to safeguard the interest of children during the litigation and mediation processes.
