As a parent, you might find yourself in an unpleasant situation where you cannot agree with the other parent in respect of your parental responsibilities. These might be issues on which school the child should attend, what religion they should be raised in, what medical treatment they should get and so on.
Where it is not possible to reach an agreement, there are legal instruments that can be used to assist you. You do not need to be a parent separated from the child’s other parent to use these tools. Unfortunately, such disagreements can also arise in families that are still cohabiting.
At RVS Solicitors, our family law team will provide expert, quick, and meticulously researched advice about applying for a Prohibited Steps Order (PSO) and Specific Issues Order (SIO).
We are members of Resolution and follow their Code of Practice which focuses on resolving family disputes in a non-confrontational and peaceful way. This is especially important when making applications for a PSO or an SIO, as family relationships may already be strained. Our family solicitors will advise you in a way that preserves or seeks to repair family relations rather than inflame conflict.
