Child Arrangements

We understand that it can be a difficult and stressful time when deciding and agreeing upon child arrangements. Doing the best for your child(ren) will be a primary concern.

Despite having best intentions, emotions can on occasions make it difficult to communicate effectively.

We take the time to listen and understand the details of your situation to ensure you receive the best advice.

We offer advice and assistance in all matters regarding child arrangements including but not limited to the following:

  • Child Arrangements Order: This outlines with who the child is to live with and who the child will spend time with i.e. have contact with.
  • Prohibited Steps Order: This Order stops a parent from taking a particular step, for example, preventing a child from being taken out of the country
  • Specific Issue Order: This Order is there to resolve a particular issue, for example, which school a child should attend, change of name or leave to remove for a holiday.

Child Abduction

Child abduction can be a very complex area of law and requires special expertise and knowledge. Having your child taken abroad by a family member without your agreement is a very frightening and distressing experience.

We ensure that we are always on hand and react as a matter of urgency in order to bring your child back home.

We at Orange Tree Solicitors always ensure we provide you with advice in the most confidential, efficient and cost effective way.
