Coronavirus Crisis: Guidance on Compliance with Family Court Child Arrangement Orders

President’s Guidance

The President of the Family Division, Sir Andrew McFarlane, has issued guidance concerning compliance with Family Court child arrangement orders during the coronavirus crisis. He says that during the current crisis some parents whose children are the subject of child arrangements orders made by the Family Court have been concerned about their ability to meet the requirements of these court orders safely in the wholly unforeseen circumstances that now apply. Therefore, he has issued a short statement intended to offer advice but he acknowledges that, as the circumstances of each child and family will differ, any advice can only be in the most general form.
