Preventing or Limiting Contact Between a Parent and a Child Bristol

When one parent is preventing another from having contact with their child, it can be a tricky situation to navigate. In some cases, it’s rooted in concerns over the other parent posing a risk of harm. While relatively rare, there are also cases where a parent is entirely cutting off the other’s access to their children – a difficult situation to confront alone, and one that could call for legal intervention.

In making such a decision, it is important to understand that just because you’re not receiving financial support for the child doesn’t mean you have the right to stop contact. In cases where the parent is regularly late or failing to visit their children as required by a court order, taking away their contact rights is similarly tricky. Family court advisory personale will take on board serious concerns to maintain contact.

Family law specialists can help with safeguarding concerns you may have about your ex partner. A child arrangement order will always evolve around the needs of the child concerned.

Child arrangements order are always based around what is best for the child in question. The child’s welfare will take into consideration domestic abuse, drug or alcohol abuse and other issues. Family law specialists will advise that you are unable to stop child contact, where either party has parental responsibility.

If you want to limit contact with the other parent, you’ll likely need to bring the matter before a court. The question of whether to limit contact is typically evaluated on a case-by-case basis, with judges carefully considering all of the relevant factors. In special cases where there is intended physical or psychological harm to the children, for example, a parent can seek a court order to limit or stop contact, citing specific risks. Contact arrangements and child contact order can prevent stopping child contact. Court proceedings for child contact and child support or such a situation where the resident parent wants to change an existing court order will need a new MIAMS completed before apply to the court.

Sometimes, rather than imposing a complete ban on contact, a judge may opt for supervised visitation, or create other solutions designed to protect the child’s well-being. If you’re facing this issue, a mediator like UK Family Mediation Bristol can be an invaluable resource, working with both parties to find a resolution that is in the best interests of the child.
