Hi, thanks for your question. I am a qualified family law solicitor.
Initially she should suggest that they attend mediation so that they can agree arrangements for each parent to continue their relationship with their daughter so that their separation has the least impact on her. She can find local mediators here: http://www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk
If mediation is unsuccessful them she would have passed the gateway in order to pursue a court application dorna child arrangement order which can be submitted under a Form c100 to her local family court.
