Childcare LawChild Arrangements Order:

This term replaces the former terms of Residence and Contact Orders (and before that - Custody and Access). Courts now talk in terms of who the child should live with and what time they should spend with each parent.

Prohibited Steps Order:

This is an application asking a Court to make an order preventing a person from carrying out a certain action in relation to a child regardless of whether they have parental responsibility for the child, such as removing the child from the jurisdiction of England and Wales.

Specific Issue Order:

This is an Order asking a Court to determine a specific issue which has arisen such as what school the child should attend or what medical treatment a child should receive where the child’s parents or people who share parental responsibility for the child are unable to agree on the specific issue.

Special Guardianship Order:

This is an order conferring parental responsibility on an individual or individuals who would not ordinarily have parental responsibility (a non-parent) and authorising them to care for a child without severing legal ties with the birth family. A Special Guardian can exercise his/her parental responsibility for the child to the exclusion of the child’s parents but not another Special Guardian.

Parental Responsibility Order:

An order conferring parental responsibility usually on an unmarried father who is not named on the child’s birth certificate or a family member who has cared for and demonstrated commitment towards the child over a sustained period.

Order for disclosure of a child’s whereabouts:

An application to trace the whereabouts of a child or the person with whom the child is living.
