Depending upon the circumstances, there are a number of different orders that a court can make in relation to a child’s welfare and safeguarding following the separation of parents.
With our years of experience, Stuart Gordon Solicitors can help you with all aspects of these legal proceedings, and are pleased to explain here the details of some of the most common orders which are available to you as a parent.
Representation for parents in relation to applications to Court for Child Arrangements Orders, Specific Issues Orders and Prohibited Steps Orders
Very often, if parents are unable to agree on certain things regarding their children, different orders are necessary depending upon the circumstances. The type of order needed depends on what cannot be agreed upon between the parents. More than one order can be applied for.
Child Arrangements Orders
In essence, a child arrangements order decides where your child lives, when your child spends time with each parent, and where your child lives. It can also stipulate what kinds of other contact are permitted, such as phone calls, and when these can take place.
Child arrangements orders replace residence orders and contact orders which preceded them.
Specific Issues Orders
Specific issues orders are granted in order to remedy specific issues or questions relating to how a child is being brought up, such as which school they attend, or if their education should be religious.
Prohibited Steps Orders
Prohibited steps orders stop the other parent making decisions about the child. These can include a variety of different things, including stopping changing a child’s surname, preventing them from being taken out of the country, or concerning medical treatment of the child. In essence, prohibited steps orders are the court preventing certain actions from taking place.
