Hi, thank you for your question. Was a child arrangement order or a special guardianship order made in your favour?
Thanks for confirming. The best course of action would be for her to apply to court to vary the order so that the child arrangement order is in her favour. This can be done under form C100 and a £215 court fee to the children's local family court. Given the history of local authority involvement, they may involve themselves at least to investigate to ensure there is no risk to the children.
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
