Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.

In fact, normally contact orders actually end when a child reaches the age of 16, unless there are exceptional circumstances where the order can have effect for a longer period and end at the latest when the child is 18.

They would not continue past that age.
