Child Arrangement through court- How long can it take?
#1
Dear Fellows,

Please can you advise on how long does it take to seek court based child arrangement?

Bit of background I had changed my immigration status on basis of my wife, which she got curtailed on pretext of divorcing which is ongoing process now. So I am applying on basis of my child who is british citizen and I was told by some solicitor I need to have some kind of court order on child arrangement to stay back in the country. The truth is I have been supporting my child and home since my wife on maternity. I am worried about my child as this would totally take me away from little one. Please can you advice/

Hi Dell.

In my case it took 8 months. I guess it depends on the court, whether you're represented or not. It can also depend on whether reports have to be prepared for the court by the likes of CAFCAS etc.

Good luck

Thanks Dazzpol,

Do you know if mediation or self discussion evidence is important to apply for Court based arrangement?

No case is ever the same. You might get a deal done at your first hearing, or it might go on for months.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.

Mine took 4 months. It depends on the court. Some courts are busier than other so may take longer in those. You need to make sure everything you submit is correct so that it is not returned to you for amendments
