Schooling, Medical Treatment, Religion and Holidays
Specific Issue Orders are made by the Court when the parents are unable to resolve a specific point, such as choosing a school, what medical treatment a child should receive, decisions over changing a child’s surname, deciding on their religious upbringing or taking a child abroad.
A Prohibited Steps Order prevents a parent from taking a specific course of action in respect of a child without the Court’s permission. This may be necessary, for example, where one parent intends to take a child abroad against the wishes of the other parent or tries to change a child’s school or move a child’s home without agreement.
We are able to offer specialist advice on making these types of application so as to ensure that your case is prepared properly and the correct procedure is followed to protect the interest of the child(ren).
