Under the Children Act 1989 where any parent has concern regarding the removal of the child/children in question that parent can apply to the Court for what is known as a “Prohibited Steps Order”.
This will be an application to the Court asking for an Order prohibiting the other party from removing the child from the Court’s jurisdiction.
The Court is also at liberty to attach other conditions to the Order to secure the child/children’s safety/arrangements.
Where the parents are unable to agree on any major issues regarding the upbringing of the child/children in question for example, schooling, religious upbringing or location of residence, a Specific Issue Order will be required asking for the Court to make a determination as to what will be in the best interest of the child/children in question.
Please refer to the Child Contact and Residence pages for the factors that the Court will take into account when considering the above applications.
Should you require a Prohibited Steps Order or a Specific Issue Order we would recommend that you contact us.
