Support for a Father with a Child Arrangements Order

Kevin represented the Father of two children. At an earlier court hearing, the court had made an order that the children should live with their Father and spend time visiting their Mother, including overnight stays.

The mother subsequently issued a further application, seeking to increase the amount of time that the children should spend with her. The matter could not be agreed, and so the case was eventually adjourned for a final contested hearing.

In the meantime, however, relations between the parents improved. On Kevin’s advice, the Father agreed to some increases in the time that the children should spend with their mother. The remaining issues that could not be agreed were resolved by the court without the need for either parent to give evidence.
