Child Arrangements Orders

Arrangements for children are recorded now in a Child Arrangements Order. This agreement is a comprehensive style of order, written in a prescribed way, that records the agreed arrangements between parents regarding their child or children. These arrangements can range from the most usual such as where the children shall live and with whom and how often the children should spend time with each parent, to the less common provisions preventing the children from being removed from the jurisdiction or other specific issues, such as schooling or changes of a surname.

With our expertise in children’s law matters and child arrangement orders, we can provide the guidance and support you need. Our team is dedicated to helping you navigate the emotional challenges while providing sound legal advice.

Making a Child Arrangement Order

When deciding on Child Arrangement Orders, several approaches can be taken. Our priority is to help you and the child’s other parent find the most suitable arrangement for your child or children. We believe that parents generally have the best understanding of their child’s needs, and our focus is on facilitating an agreement between parents as quickly and amicably as possible.

However, we realise this is not always possible, and if an agreement cannot be reached, we can guide you through the court process, supporting you every step of the way. Court can be a daunting and unfamiliar place, and whilst the Court recognises that you, as parents, are best placed to make decisions concerning your children, the Court will impose a decision upon you if this is not possible or if there are concerns regarding the child’s welfare.

Our family law specialists are on hand to help you with every aspect of children’s law and guide you through the child arrangement order process, promoting effective communication and understanding. Our professionals at Onions and Davies solicitors can give clear advice about the law and how it would be applied in your case. The Court views the welfare of your children as the most paramount consideration in any case, and we will advise you with this in mind.










Family Mediation in Shropshire Cheshire or Staffordshire

During times of emotional turmoil and stress, it can be challenging for even the most loving parents to agree on suitable child arrangements. In such cases, mediation can provide a valuable solution. By involving an impartial expert, family mediation helps facilitate constructive discussions and assists in reaching agreements that work for everyone involved.

We strongly advocate for family mediation as a valuable tool to help parents reach agreements in the best interests of their children. Our goal is to encourage parents to find common ground, avoiding the need for Court intervention. Family mediation offers a non-confrontational environment where parties can work together with the help of a neutral mediator to find mutually beneficial solutions. 

We can refer you to reputable mediators in Shropshire, Cheshire, or Staffordshire and provide further guidance on this beneficial process.
