Child Custody Lawyers Wakefield – Statement of Arrangements Advice

The matter of child custody is not automatically part of a petition for divorce, and in fact you will need to take action to clarify and secure the arrangements for custody of your children. To raise the subject, a ‘statement of arrangements for children’ must be completed.

If you have children under 16 years of age or under 18 years of age but in:

  • Full-time education
  • Training for a professional trade or vocation
then you must fill in a statement of arrangements for children.

A Statement of Arrangements a four-part form requiring detailed information about your child’s life at home, their schooling and their care and maintenance. You should seek expert professional legal advice if you are required to complete a statement of arrangements for children, as having the form completed fully and correctly can give you an advantage in any subsequent court proceedings.
