Parent’s Rights

The law recognizes parents’ rights but is more essentially concerned with the child’s rights and interests – to enjoy a full and loving relationship with both parents.

We can assist with the following:

  • Child Arrangement Order – to set out formally the amount of time your child will spend with each parent
  • Parental Responsibility Order – to ensure your rights as a parent are recognized by law
  • Specific Issue Order – to ask the court to assist in making decisions concerning certain aspects of your child’s life where the other parent is unreasonably withholding consent
  • Relocation Order – to allow you to move abroad in pursuit of better employment, a better lifestyle, or simply to be with family
  • Prohibited Steps Order – to prevent the other parent from carrying out an unreasonable act, such as abduction to another country, or even temporary removal from your care and control
