A Prohibited Steps Order is an Order used to stop one parent from making a decision or taking any step about a child’s upbringing which would require the other parent’s consent.
It can be used to prevent a parent from doing something, such as:
· Changing a child’s school.
· Changing a child’s surname.
· Removing a child from the country – either on holiday or long term.
· Relocating to a different area of the country with the child.
