Applying for a court order about the arrangements for your children without the help of a lawyer
You can find guidance on how to apply for a court order about the arrangements for your children on the Advicenow website (external link).
A child arrangements order sets out who your child or children will live with in the future, who they will spend time or have contact with, and when these arrangements will take place.
The information provided on the Advicenow website does not explain how to apply for an order for contact with your child if your child is in care – being looked after by the council.
The guidance is provided for those who will be applying for a court order without the help of a lawyer.
