The welfare of children is at the heart of any legal process that impacts on a family and although many separating parents can amicably agree arrangements for their children inevitably there are occasions when agreements cannot be reached. For those families who have a child who has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) these disputes can feel even more complicated.
With one in 100 children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder finding a lawyer who has an understanding of the challenges is key.
