Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
Please may I ask:
- are you still living together as a family now?
- how old is your son?
Thank you for your response and for clarifying that for me.
What you need to know is that the order that was made has now ceased and is no longer valid.
The Children Act, which is the relevant legislation in respect of such orders makes provision that such orders will cease to be valid if the parents reconcile and live together for a period of more than 6 months.
This is the link to the legislation for you. Paragraph 11 (6). Please note that the new name for residence orders and contact orders are Child Arrangements Orders but the law is still the same.
You do not therefore need to seek to discharge the order or take any such steps as the order is no longer valid.
