Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm how old your daughter is, what the previous arrangements were (and why they have not been followed) and what the new arrangements are? Has your ex-partner agreed to the new arrangements?
Does she agree to your suggested changes to the arrangements or is it going to be contested?
Thanks for confirming. In the circumstances you will need to apply to your local family court using form C100 and a £215 court fee to vary the child arrangement order. Given the possible contest by her, it will be best to have at least the first oral hearing in order to attempt to reach agreement and have that finalised in a new order.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
Just to add to the aboveBefore you apply to the court you must attend a Mediation Information and Assessment meeting. It would be best to try and resolve this using Mediation and a Consent Order to avoid souring the relationship between you as parents
