In a dispute about which school to send your child to?

If you are in dispute about which school your child should attend or think that it will be in the child’s best interests to change schools it will be necessary to apply for a Specific Issue Order through the courts. Our specialist lawyers understand that time is of the essence with such applications and that it is vital that any supporting evidence is obtained and properly presented to the courts.

If on the other hand you seek to stop the other parent from changing the child’s school, then you may wish to apply for a Prohibited Steps Order. This Order can prevent the other parent from changing the child’s school against your wishes, if it can be successfully argued that remaining at the existing school is in the best interests of the child.
