Revised 22 April 2014
Contact Orders have been repealed following the Children and Families Act 2014; so what type of order can be granted by the court with respect to the resolution of contact disputes over children?
As has been shown in recent years in the media, with their coverage of groups such as Fathers for Justice, contact disputes can be bitter and lead to extreme behaviour when unjust conclusions are reached.
Section 8 of Children Act 1989 sought to address this matter with Contact Orders, the purpose of which was to ascertain who had contact rights to a child and under what conditions. With the new Children and Families Act, Contact Orders have been replaced by Child Arrangement Orders. Please visit our Child Arrangements Orders article for more information..
