Challenging Contact Orders

You may be able to challenge a Contact Order if you feel the Court has made the wrong decision.  Successfully appealing a Contact Order requires the advice and representation of an experienced family lawyer, who understands the court process and the law.

Challenging a Child Contact Order with RVS Solicitors

In any case, involving the lives of children, our absolute focus is on their welfare.  And to achieve that aim, we take the time to understand your situation and discuss all of the options available in a caring and jargon-free manner.

Our family law solicitors in London, led by Rakhi Singal, are available to you when you most need it. We make your case, our case.  

We are part of the Resolution network of family lawyers, who all share the same view; that resolving family matters in a non-confrontational way is best for everyone concerned.  We believe that going to court should only ever be a route of absolute last resort.

Our approach considers the requirements of the whole family, with the needs of children taking paramount importance.  By taking this approach, we know the overall outcome is more harmonious and works in the long-term.

However, in cases where one parent is being prevented from seeing their child, court action can prove inevitable.  If this is the case, we have relationships with some of the top family law barristers in London.

By instructing us, you can be confident that you will receive robust representation in court and your interests will be resolutely advanced.

Our family lawyers in London will be by your side throughout the entire length of the proceedings, advising and representing you.  We understand how stressful contact proceedings are and will provide support and continuous communication.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

How much time do I have to appeal a Contact Order?

Time limits on appeals are strict.  If a final order has been made, you have 21 days to lodge a notice of an appeal.  It is rare for the Court to accept an out-of-time appeal. However, if you have had trouble lodging your appeal or did not realise the time limit applies, please contact us and we will advise you on your options.

Do I need permission to appeal a Contact Order?

You need to apply to the Court for permission to have a Contact order appealed.  Rakhi and her team will put together an application bundle for appeal. This will include:

  • A copy of the Contact Order
  • Grounds for appeal
  • A skeleton argument
  • Witness statements and affidavits
  • Written reasons for the Court’s decision

The judge deciding the appeal will consider the contents of the bundle and hear submissions.  He or she will then decide if your appeal has a good chance of success. If the answer is yes, a date for the appeal will be set and the Respondent (normally your ex-partner) will be asked to provide submissions and attend the hearing.

It is very difficult to successfully challenge a Contact Order without the help of an experienced family law Solicitor.  Rakhi and her team will ensure your appeal application is made correctly and a persuasive argument made to the judge.

Will the Appeal Court hear new evidence?

When deciding an appeal, the Court will normally only rule on matters of fact and law decided in the lower Court.  For example, if the lower Court made a procedural error which rendered the Contact Order unjust, the decision may be overruled on appeal.

Challenging a contact order is a complex matter.  At RVS Solicitors, we can assist and advise you, ensuring your best interests, and those of your children are taken care of.

Rakhi and her team can assist you on all matters relating to challenging a Contact Order.  You can contact us in strict confidence on020 3372 5125 or complete our online enquiry form to make an appointment.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In house counsel than hiring a law firm
      So Rakhi Singal of RVS has just handled my divorce, it was a very complex case and I came to Rakhi at the very last minute on a friend’s recommendation. My case was a mess and I stood to lose everything.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In-House counsel than hiring a law firm, she does not approach her clients as a cash machine like many law firms do, she works with you to manage and minimise your costs and de-escalate conflict rather than throw wood on the fire.

      Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
      Highly recommended. Lusine helped me out with my ILR 10-year continuous residency application. She explained everything to me, and patiently answered all my questions. She also put my mind at ease. They are very quick in replying to my emailed queries. I consulted two other solicitors before someone recommended RVS to me; the first one did not seem quite sure what to do, the second had exorbitant rates. RVS's fees are very reasonable given their professionalism.
