Order of Prohibited Orders and Orders of Certain Issues
Order Orders are Prohibited
The banned steps command is used to stop your child’s parents from taking a specific action, or Prohibit the Steps until such action is taken. This is an enforceable command to be given by a British court. It is most commonly used to stop the following actions:
· In order for the child to have no contact with someone who will have a bad influence on it. This is usually used if parents do not trust friends from other parents and expect their child to be around them.
· To prevent other parents from moving abroad and bringing their children. Or moving a long distance that can make contact with both parents is very difficult.
· To prevent parents from changing the child’s surname by a name they disagree with.
Orders of Specific Problems
Certain Issues Orders are no different than the banned steps order. But it creates rules to be followed by parents and not rules that should not be broken. You should remember that this order is less common because it is only used when there is disagreement. This command should not be used when parents approve of this issue. The most common things involved in a particular Order of the Problem are:
· Which school should the child attend?
• When, where and when the child should be on vacation.
· Are children allowed to move permanently abroad.
· If the child has to receive certain medical treatment or not.
· If the child’s name can be changed.
Court Judicial Considerations
Courts will always consider the welfare of children above all else when they consider giving orders or not. If the child’s welfare will not be fixed according to the order, even if that’s what the parents want, then the order will not be given. This coincides with the “no order” part of the child. It states that a child will benefit from not having to do with court hassles and court orders.
Most of the time, if an order would prevent the child from connecting with their parents, or family members close to them (such as grandparents) then the order would be rejected by the court. The welfare of a child will always be higher if they have contact with more parenting figures.
