Child Arrangement Orders
When couples with children decide to separate or divorce, it can be a difficult and emotional time for everyone involved. One of the biggest challenges is deciding on child arrangements. In some cases, parents can come to an agreement on their own, but in others, the court may need to get involved.
At MLS Legal, we understand how sensitive these matters can be, and we are here to offer our expertise and guidance to ensure that the best interests of the child are always the top priority.
A Child Arrangement Order (CAO) is a court order that sets out where a child will live and who they will have contact with. It can also include details about when and how often the child will see each parent, as well as any other arrangements that need to be made.
When making a decision on a CAO, the court will take into account a variety of factors, including the child's welfare and best interests, their wishes and feelings (if they are old enough to express them), and the parents' ability to meet their needs.
At MLS Legal, our experienced family lawyers can help you navigate the complexities of obtaining a CAO. We will work with you to assess your situation and provide expert advice on the best course of action. We will also represent you in court if necessary, ensuring that your rights and the best interests of your child are protected.
