Child Contact Issues

If you and you and your partner agree on child arrangements

In order to protect your agreement you should speak to a solicitor to have it legally binding. At Family Law Birmingham we can draft a ‘consent order’ to be signed by you and your partner. A ‘consent order’ will detail:● where the children will live● when the children will spend time with each parent● when and what other types of contact will take place
Once the consent order has been signed by you and your partner you will then need to have your order approved by a judge to make it legally binding, a process in which our team of experts have had extensive experience of completing. This process does not normally require a court hearing.

If you and your partner are unable to agree on child arrangements

Divorce and separation can be a difficult process and it may not always be possible to come to an agreement in relation to the children. In this scenario you will need to apply for a court order which will likely involve attending a number of court hearings.

Child Arrangement Order

A Child Arrangement Order will detail: ● where the children will live● when the children will spend time with each parent● when and what other types of contact will take place
These orders are most common when there is absolutely no agreement between the parties as to what arrangements should be in place for their children.

A Specific Issue Order

A specific issue order is used in relation to a specific arrangement in relation to the children. This is often used in the situation where there is a broad agreement in relation to the children but there is disagreement regarding a specific issue. For example if there is a disagreement regarding what school the children will go to or what religious education they would have. A specific issue order will state what is to happen in relation to that specific area of disagreement only.
It is also possible to apply for a ‘prohibited steps order’ which would prevent the other parent from making a decision about the child’s upbringing.
