Children: Dispute Resolution Explained

Other than adoption and an order warding a child, all former orders that related to the upbringing of a child have been swept away by the Children Act. New guardianship schemes have been created and new parental responsibility orders for unmarried fathers implemented. Most importantly, four orders: a residence order, a contact order, a prohibited steps order and a specific issues order are now available.
