Prohibited Steps & Specific Issues Orders - 

A Prohibited Steps Order can prevent a specific course of action by someone with parental responsibility.  Alternatively, a Specific Issue Order is used a particular matter that the parents of a child cannot agree on needs resolving.  When it comes to decisions relating to education, religion and health, these should be agreed by the parents of the child where possible. However, if you are worried about the decisions that are being made on behalf of your child by someone else with parental responsibility, we can help you resolve these issues through negotiation or an application to the Court.  Examples of these Orders are preventing the change of a child’s surname, moving the child to another school or preventing certain medical treatments. 


When making these types of Orders, the Court will give priority consideration to the wishes and feelings of the child, the effect of the change, the child’s sex and age and any harm the child has suffered or is at risk of suffering. If the child is above 12, their wishes and feelings will generally be taken into account above other considerations. 


It's nearing that time of the year and it is important that we do not forget our four legged friends! F.A.I.T.H. Animal Rescue are always doing such a great job and that is why we have decided to open up both of our offices in Acle and in Loddon as donation banks for items such as:

Bedding/Newspapers/Litter and Blankets 
Pet Food
Brooms and Buckets 
Animal Treats

Let's give these lovely people a helping hand before Christmas and during these colder, winter months!
