Specific Issue Order
A Specific Issue Order is an order which deals with a specific question or issue which may arise in connection with a child that the parents or a person with Parental Responsibility are unable to agree on.
In our experience a Specific Issue Order is often used to decide:
- which school a child should attend
- whether a child should have a particular operation or course of treatment
- which religion the child should follow
What will the court consider ?
When a court is considering whether to make a Specific Issue Order it will take into consideration the following factors :-
- What is in the childs best interests
- The wishes and feelings of the child
- The effect on the child of any change in their circumstances
- Any harm the child has suffered or is at risk of suffering
- The child's, physical, emotional and educational needs
