Billie Piper and Laurence Fox in custody battle

Posted on: June 12th, 2018

Laurence Fox has recently opened up to the media about his bitter custody battle with his ex wife, actor Billie Piper.

The couple have two young children together. Their divorce was finalised in November 2017, but arrangements concerning the children could not be agreed and the parties sought the assistance of the Court.

Fox, 40, divulged how he was forced to re-mortgage his house and sell his motorbike in order to fund ongoing legal fees. He also told how the stress of legal proceedings caused him to have regular anxiety attacks, rendering him almost suicidal.

At Coffin Mew, our experienced Family Lawyers understand that it can be extremely distressing if your relationship breaks down with your partner and you cannot agree on when you will see your children, or who they should live with. The legal process can be confusing and you may feel vulnerable, depressed or even alienated by your ex and other family members.

Often a sensible solution, which focuses on the ‘best interests’ of the children, can be reached without recourse to the Courts. However, if this is not possible, we can refer your case to mediation or offer detailed advice on issuing child arrangement proceedings.
