What is a child arrangements order? 

A child arrangements order is a court order that sets out who is responsible for the care of a child. It is usually used when the parents cannot agree on how to split care of their children.

A child arrangements order can state: Who the children live with, where they live and when and how the children will see both parents.

For example, they may spend weeknights in the family home and weekends with the other parent. It can also set out other types of contact such as phone calls, video calls, cards and letters etc.

You need to apply to the family court for a child arrangement order, and the process can include several hearings. Once in place, the order is legally binding and usually lasts until the child is 18 years old.
