Drafting Effective Child Arrangement Orders - Tips & Common Issues Explored

MBL Seminars



WHEN : 11 Dec 2023 9:00am - 11:00am

Child Arrangements Orders (‘CAOs’) are the cornerstone of the private law children proceedings.

The orders detail the arrangements for children that are ordered by the court or agreed by the parties. They can include contact directions and conditions and detail arrangements both now and in the future.

This virtual classroom seminar will help you draft CAOs and equip you with a range of useful hints and tips. The live session will also explore some common issues and help you avoid these potential pitfalls.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Overview of CAOs and their legal foundations
  • The Court’s duty when considering CAOs
  • Likely concerns of the court
  • Basic drafting principles
  • Practical hints and tips
  • Planning ahead for potential enforcement issues
  • The ‘standard order’ precedents and recent updates

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
