covid - 19 and child order

New Member Registered


I have a child arrangement order in place to meet my children. recently my ex partner told the court I am visiting my parents with my children during lockdown.
when i went to court i mentioned that this was a support bubble and my parents need me to help them on daily tasks, however the court ordered me that i am not allowed take or mix my children with my parents as its a seperate household, to which i agreed.

Very recently due to financial issues i had to move back and live with my parents and this is my house, I had informed my ex- partner over the phone of my new household and I am living with my parents.

My ex- partner has now cut off my contact with the children and taking me to a urgent court hearing saying i have breached the court order by mixing the children with my parents who i now live with.

please can anyone help me on this.

If it is now your fixed address, I dont think it will be a problem? I am not 100% sure on that though. Children can go between homes when parents separated, so I would imagine it will still be ok?

Do you have a hearing date for this? Children are allowed to go between houses but if your parents are classed as vulnerable this could be a problem. Perhaps you could ask for video contact in the interim? Hopefully, it won't be long before the restrictions begin to be lifted.

If you live at parents house then theres nothing she can do . Whats even more stupid on her part is time theres a court hearing restrictions will be lifted to some degree as well. Also you respected what court ordered when u didnt live there even though they were your support bubble, Sounds like u had lay magistrates who probably didnt really know all the covid 19 rules and regualtions at the time so was easier to order u not to go there

very silly of her to make urgent court hearing. you live with your parents now so your not doing anything wrong. she is a bit late. most of them blocked contact at first lockdown last year. Gov will make big announcement this coming monday about lockdown restrictions. may be helpful in this situation. these antics won't last for much longer.

As champagne has said, this could be an issue if your parents are classed as vulnerable. Depending on their ages, I'm assuming they will have recently been vaccinated or due to be?

If she's contacted the court, let them deal with it and propose something like video in the interim?
