What is a Child Arrangements Order?
A Child Arrangements Order is a court order that specifies who is accountable for the care of a child. It is typically used when parents cannot agree on how to divide child care responsibilities.
A Child Arrangements Order can specify who the children live with, where they live, and when and how they will visit both parents. For example, they may spend weeknights at the family home and weekends with the other parent. It can also specify additional methods of interaction, such as phone calls, video chats, cards, and letters.
Simply defined, a CAO outlines who has custody of the children and what rights the other parent has. This is true in Manchester as it is around the country.
You must apply to the family court for a Child Arrangements Order, and the procedure may entail numerous hearings. Once in place, the order is legally enforceable and normally lasts until the child reaches the age of 18. With so much at risk, it is critical that you get skilled legal assistance.
