Prohibited Steps Orders can also be used to prevent a parent from removing a child from the other’s care. If for example a parent has threatened to take the child and not return him or her then an application for a Prohibited Steps Order can be made. If a child has however been taken then an emergency application can be made to the court for a Specific Issue Order for the child to be returned. The court will also usually attach a penal notice to the Order which means that if the parent does not abide by the terms of the Order i.e. does not return the child then that parent can be arrested.
We are also able to advise on more specialist matters such as adoption, surrogacy and Special Guardianship Orders.[/vc_column_text][dt_fancy_title title=”Grandparents & Granchildren” title_size=”h2″ title_color=”accent” separator_style=”double”][vc_column_text]The rights grandparents have are not so clear-cut as those of mothers and fathers but if you are experiencing issues seeing your grandchildren and spending time with them, we can advise you on the best course of action and whether you may be able to make a Court application. Grandparents who have enjoyed consistent contact with their grandchildren can apply to Court for permission to make an application for child contact under the Children Act 1989 (whereas parents generally have an automatic right to make these applications.) We can advise you on the strength of your case and negotiate robustly on your behalf with the mothers and fathers involved. You might feel helpless in this situation but Advantage Solicitors will advise you on what your rights are and assist in making your voice heard.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”FINANCIAL SETTLEMENTS” h2_font_container=”font_size:22|color:%23dd3333″ h2_google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” h2_css_animation=”fadeIn” style=”outline” color=”grey” add_button=”right” btn_title=”More Info” btn_style=”3d” btn_align=”right” btn_css_animation=”fadeIn” css_animation=”fadeIn” use_custom_fonts_h2=”true” btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Facornwebstudio.com%2Fadvantagesolicitors%2F%3Fpage_id%3D290|||”]For financial related matters, where children are not involved please see our financial settlements section, where you will you can obtain more information regarding divorce settlements.[/vc_cta][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”sidebar_3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” style=”shadow”][dt_fancy_title title=”Latest News & Information” title_size=”h2″ title_color=”accent” separator_style=”double”][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][dt_blog_carousel post_type=”posts” autoplay=”y” post_category=”n” post_author=”n” post_comments=”n” excerpt_words_limit=”45″ arrow_bg_width=”36x” arrow_border_width=”0px” r_arrow_icon_paddings=”0px 0px 0px 0px” r_arrow_v_offset=”0px” l_arrow_icon_paddings=”0px 0px 0px 0px” l_arrow_v_offset=”0px” posts=””][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_separator color=”black” style=”shadow”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
