Matters relating to Child Arrangements are governed by the Children Act 1989. Section 3(1) of the Children Act 1989 defines parental responsibility as all the rights, duties, powers, responsibilities and authority which by law a parent of a child has in relation to the child and his property.
The presumption of parental involvement states that the involvement of each parent in the life of the child concerned will further the child’s welfare unless contrary can be shown. These proceedings are there for the purpose of determining where a child shall live and whom they should have contact with. There are other orders that the Court may consider putting in place under Section 8 of the Children Act 1989 such as Specific issue and Prohibited Steps Orders.
Where a Court need to decide matters, the child’s welfare is the Court’s paramount consideration. On deciding these matters, the Court will have regard to the welfare checklist.

PROTECTION FROM DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND NON-MOLESTATION
If you are experiencing domestic abuse or have been intimidated or threatened with violence by your partner or a person who is associated to you, our specialist adviser can help you. Domestic abuse can be verbal, emotional, financial, physical or mental. The list is non-exhaustive, contact us to receive confidential legal advice.
Part IV Family Law Act 1996 (FLA 1996) governs the protection of people who suffer abuse. The provisions were designed to create a unified system of court orders to provide protection from molestation and violence and to regulate the occupation of the family home.
Unfortunately, in today’s society domestic violence does occur. At Bila Legal this is something we take very seriously and understand that this would usually leave the victim feeling anxious and vulnerable. We believe that everyone deserves the right to live life without fear of harm to themselves or their children.
We will endeavour to prioritise your matter and provide you with sympathetic and expert advice to assist you. Domestic violence includes both physical and mental abuse as well as threats and intimidation from a person you are associated with such as partner or family member. It can be a one-off incident or a pattern of behaviours that may have been ongoing for many years.
Domestic violence should be taken seriously. If you or your children are in immediate danger, you should contact your local police force immediately and seek assistance. Victims of domestic violence can apply for an injunction through the Civil Court which is also referred to as a Non-Molestation Order. The order prohibits the abusive person from harassing you and from carrying out further abuse or instruct any other person to do so. The order also sets out that they should not come within certain metres of your place of residence.
The breaching of a Non-Molestation Order is a criminal offence, and it carries a power of arrest, the police will have powers to arrest anyone who is alleged to have breached the order. Anyone found guilty in criminal proceedings of breaching a Non-Molestation order could be imprisoned for up to five years.
