Prohibited Steps Order
What is a Prohibited Steps Order?
A Prohibited Steps Order is granted by a family court to prevent a parent from making certain decisions about a child’s upbringing. This also will bar that parent from taking the child abroad or somewhere in the UK where it does not live. With the Order in place, the person wishing to remove the child would need the permission of the other parent. Breaching a Prohibited Steps Order is a criminal offence. This is known as kidnapping. This charge has a maximum sentence of 20 years. Prohibited Steps Orders can be used to:
- stop a parent from allowing the child to associate with a particular person;
- prevent a parent from changing the child’s surname;
- to prevent a parent from taking a child out of the country;
- prevent a UK relocation of a child by one parent; and
- in connection with the medical treatment of a child.
