Orders of the Court

A Residence Order says where a child should live.

A Contact Order regulates telephone calls, visits, night stop-overs, weekends or holidays with the absent parent.

A Prohibited Steps Order is when one parent objects to something that the other parent is doing concerning their child. That parent can apply to the court for the other person to stop doing it. For example, this may be where one parent wishes to move with the children to live in another country. A specific issue order is used if parents are unable to agree on a specific aspect of their child’s upbringing such as which school they should attend.

In all of the above cases, an Order must be applied for and granted by the Court.
