Hi all. I have been told that my ex is applying for a specific issue order. I have no idea what for, however.

Can anyone tell me what I might expect? What might typically be included in a specific issue order?

Currently there is a prohibited steps order in place which prevents her from moving my son''s home away from where he presently resides. Additionally I have applied for a residence order, if that is likely to make any difference.

A Specific Issue Order does very much what it says, resolves a specific issue relating to Parental Responsibility. For example, it may be used to resolve disputes about medical treatment, education, religion or a change of a child''s name, or to apply for permission from the courts to take the children abroad on holiday if the appropriate consent from the other parent isn''t forthcoming, to relocate children to another country or to move children to a different part of the UK.

Thanks. I don''t know what is to be involved in that then.

As I say, there is a PSO in place to stop her from moving his home. Would it make sense to apply for a specific issue order to vary that? I would have expected that she would apply to very the PSO or to discharge it.

There is no religion in either family, he''s not yet in education and I haven''t been asked about going on holiday so haven''t refused consent.
