What is a Child Arrangements Order?
A Child Arrangements Order is a court order that specifies who is accountable for a child's care. It is typically employed when parents cannot agree on how to divide parental responsibility for their children.
A Child Arrangements Order can specify who the children live with, where they live, and when and how they see both parents. They may, for example, spend weeknights at the family home and weekends with the other parent. Other methods of interaction, such as phone calls, video chats, cards, and letters, can also be specified.
Simply expressed, a CAO establishes who has custody of the child and what rights the other parent has. This is true in Leeds, as it is throughout the country.
You must petition to the family court for a Child Arrangements Order, which may require multiple sessions. Once in effect, the order is legally enforceable and normally lasts until the child reaches the age of 18. As a result, with so much at risk, it is critical that you get professional legal assistance.
