The old “Residence” and “Contact” orders have been replaced by the Child Arrangements Order.

This is a change in emphasis to encourage parents to focus on the arrangements that are made for their children rather than the label given to it.

Child Arrangements Orders are defined as an order regulating arrangements relating to any of the following:

  • With whom a child is to live, spend time with or otherwise have contact
  • When a child is to live, spend time or otherwise have contact with any person.

The two main issues that parents will encounter are therefore still the question of where a child will live or reside and then the time they will spend with the parent that they do not live with.

Thanks for your assistance with my case, your advice has been invaluable, and I would certainly recommend Banner Jones to my family and friends.
