Co-parenting is a challenge for most separated parents, especially if you and your former partner do not always see eye to eye. If your co-parent or someone else wants to make a decision about your child’s upbringing that you do not agree with, a Prohibited Steps Order can stop them.
At Crisp & Co, we provide bespoke family law advice to families across London and the rest of the UK.
We work tirelessly to help families find positive, long-term solutions to their problems. We understand that co-parents often have different goals and priorities that make decisions about children extremely difficult. For example, parents often want to relocate their children to other parts of the country or abroad to be closer to other family members. However, this sometimes means leaving the child’s other parent behind and reducing contact. In these types of situations, it can be challenging to decide what is in the best interests of the child and a third party perspective from a family judge is often what is needed to resolve the situation.
We can provide practical advice about obtaining a Prohibited Steps Order to prevent your child’s other parent or anyone else from making a particular decision about the child.
It is essential to talk to a specialist children law solicitor when thinking about applying for a Prohibited Steps Order. Court proceedings can be long and stressful, especially for children, so a professional can help you explore all other options before proceeding as well as handling the court application process for you.
