ARRANGE A CALL BACK FROM MEDIATOR
Many parents in UK were fond of making applications for residence and contact orders to the courts with the primary goal of just having the order regardless of potential dispute on the matter. The government noticed a huge influx of people making unnecessary applications for such orders. As a result, the government came up with a new strategy to help control this situation which was getting out of hand. On 22nd April 2014, the UK government scrapped off “residence” and “contact” orders and replaced them with “Child Arrangement Order”.
Child Arrangement Order is a court order that stipulates the individual with whom the child will spend time with, contact and live with. The order also covers on the timeframe in which the child is to live, spend time with or contact any individual.
Basically, child arrangement is divided into two categories; that indicate with whom the child is to live with and that which indicates when and how the child is to spend time or have contact with anyone.
Mediation is quite a cheap way of solving problems and getting the best approach to a problem outside court. It is highly effective when it comes to problems related to children. Anyone who wants to apply for a child arrangement order should consider going for training regarding mediation to help him or her know the best ways to approach child disputes before embarking on the journey of relating with a child.
