What differences will Covid-19 make to your case and other residential orders. 

Contact between children and parents should not be automatically suspended by 'resident' parent sighting COVID 19 - Corona Virus pandemic as an false excuse.

CAFCASS has issued guidance which says: "Unless there are justified medical/ self-isolation issues, (or some future nationally issued guidance or expectation associated with leaving the house in your area) children should also maintain their usual routine of spending time with each of their parents. If there is a Child Arrangements Order in place this should be complied with unless to do so would put your child, or others at risk. This will help your child to feel a sense of consistency, whilst also reassuring them that the parent they don't always live with is safe and healthy."


All parents should consider the following factor and then be positive about facilitating contact :

  1. Are there any justified medical reasons impacting contact?

  2. Are there any self isolation issues?

  3. What does the child arrangement order state and that should be complied with

  4. Complying with the Order does not put anyone at risk

  5. Non-Compliance of the Court's Order can impact the child's emotional health and may remove the consistency on contact. It can also send a wrong message that the child is only safe at one home and not at the other.

Court Help Limited is here to help those parents who are struggling due to non-compliance of Court Orders by resident parents.
