This answer was rated:

I have a child arrangement order discussing my ex husband's visitations right. And it only states at the top of the order that the child resides with mother what rights does this give me if any?
Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm if "the child resides with the mother" is listed under the heading "order" or "it is ordered", or does it come before that and outlines what the current arrangement for your daughter is?

I think the answer to your questions is that nothing of that sort is ordered it is just mentioned in bullet point number 2 and 9.
Thanks for confirming - unfortunately, this does not give rise to any rights - as it is just to specify the current arrangements for ease of reference. The court is still to make a decision regarding the father's application and your request for an order for her to live with you.Please provide a positive rating if you found this helpful. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
