Children Orders (Custody orders)

Child custody orders are not only a complex area of law, but also involves number of delicate issues that should be handled with sensitivity and foresight. Our dedicated family law team is committed to providing comprehensive and tailored advice to protect the rights and well-being of children and parents. We specialise in handling a wide range of circumstances in disputes between parents and situations where the child’s welfare is at stake.

When it comes to child arrangement orders, we recognize that there may be significant changes in circumstances or genuine concerns about the child’s welfare that necessitate revisiting existing arrangements, or putting new measures in place for specific actions and so on. Our experienced family law solicitors will carefully assess your case, taking into account all relevant factors, and provide expert guidance and representation to challenge contact orders where appropriate. We understand the importance of ensuring that the contact arrangements serve the best interests of the child while safeguarding your parental rights.

Irrespective of what your circumstances are, our child arrangement solicitors will be your trusted advisors. Some of the areas that we provide support in cover:

Challenging Contact Orders

Contact orders determine the arrangements for a non-resident parent to spend time with their child. However, there may be circumstances where it becomes necessary to challenge an existing contact order. This could be due to changes in the circumstances of either parent, for instance a new job or a new partner that requires relocation which can affect the child’s residence, or contact with the child. Or perhaps there are concerns regarding the child’s welfare due to a change of circumstances. Irrespective of what your specific worries and concerns are that led you to seeking assistance, our experienced family law solicitors can provide expert guidance and representation. We will carefully assess your case, gather evidence, and present compelling arguments to the court to support your position. Our goal is to ensure that the contact arrangements serve the best interests of the child, allowing you to have a meaningful relationship with your child.

Prohibited Steps Order and Specific Issue Order Applications

Prohibited Steps Orders and Specific Issue Orders are legal tools used to resolve disputes between parents regarding specific issues or decisions related to their children. Prohibited Steps Orders prohibit certain actions from being taken, while Specific Issue Orders address specific matters that require a specific action to be taken. These orders may be necessary in situations such as disputes over schooling, medical treatment, or religious upbringing. At RVS Solicitors, we have extensive experience in handling applications for Prohibited Steps Orders and Specific Issue Orders. Our dedicated family law solicitors can assist you in making or challenging these applications, ensuring that the best interests of your child are protected and appropriate decisions are made.

Residence Order Applications

Residence orders determine with whom a child will primarily live. They are important in establishing the child’s main residence and can have a significant impact on custody and contact arrangements. Residence orders may be sought in cases of separation or divorce, where parents are unable to reach an agreement on the child’s living arrangements. Residence orders can have significant impact on the child’s well-being and stability, in particular considering the effects the breakdown of the family would have already had on the child. Our experienced family law solicitors can assist you in obtaining residence order applications, all the while trying to keep things from escalating. We will work closely with you to gather evidence, prepare a strong case, and represent your interests in court to ensure the best possible outcome for your child.

Special Guardianship Applications

Special guardianship is a legal status that grants a person (other than the child’s parents) significant rights and responsibilities for the child’s upbringing. It is often sought in situations where the child cannot live with their parents, but adoption is not deemed necessary. Special guardianship may be appropriate in cases involving parental incapacity, substance abuse, or other circumstances that affect the child’s welfare. At RVS Solicitors, we can guide you through the process of making a special guardianship application. Our dedicated family law solicitors will explain the legal requirements, assist you in gathering the necessary evidence, and represent your interests in court. We are committed to safeguarding the welfare and best interests of the child throughout the special guardianship process.
