What is  a Residence Order?

A Residence Order is a Court Order confirming where a child will live until they reach sixteen. Often a Residence Order is twinned with a Contact Order outlining what contact the other parent should have.  The Court can make a sole Residence Order where a child lives with one parent or a Shared Residence Order where a child lives between the separate homes of both parents. 

At Edwards and Co. Solicitors we are here to help and continue in our commitment to providing advice and assistance in respect of all children’s matters in a professional, practical and caring way. If you wish to discuss any concern in confidence, please do not hesitate to contact Carla Fraser.
