What is a child arrangements order?
Child Arrangements Order is generally a last resort when all other options and avenues for reaching an agreement with your ex-partner in relation to your children have been exhausted.
It may be that communication between you and your ex-partner has broken down to such an extent that it is just not possible to reach an agreement between yourselves. It may be that, whilst the dialogue is still open between you and your ex-partner, you just cannot agree on the best arrangements for your children.
What can be included in a Child Arrangements Order?
Child Arrangements Orders can be used to define a number of matters relating to your child including: –
- Which parent your child is to live with;
- How frequently your child is to spend with the non-resident parent;
- The type of direct contact your child is to have with the non-resident parent, for example, whether it is just for a couple of hours or overnight and whether it is to be supervised or unsupervised;
- Whether your child is to have indirect contact with the non-resident parent, for example, by way of phone calls, Facetime, letters etc;
- Arrangements for how the school holidays will be divided between the two parents and provision for any change to term time contact; and
- Arrangements for taking your child on holiday either in the UK or abroad, for example, giving the other parent a defined period of notice if you wish to take your child away and providing them with details of the trip.

I can’t speak more highly of them.
Made everything more clear with extremely helpful advice.
Sensitive & Efficient
Many thanks to Laura and Kieran for the sensitive, and efficient way they dealt with my legal matter. Helping to make what was a very emotional time bearable, I can highly recommend the team at Consilia Legal.
Laura was exceptional. Having consulted with other firms on the matter, Laura was the only one that truly understood the different elements of the case and knew exactly how to handle it. She was able to daft in the correct barrister for the job and took a great weight off my shoulders. I really cant thank Laura and the team enough.
Laura and the team have been an incredible help in my divorce. Through a very difficult time they have always been on hand to offer exceptional advice and assistance. I have always felt reassured by their professionalism and care. Thank You
