Children Order: Prohibited Steps Order

4th October 2022

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.
