The legal definitions of parental responsibility and parental rights overlap to a certain extent: “in order to exercise his parental responsibility for his child, including the right to have the child live with him or her or to determine his or her place of residence”, the right to control, direct or direct the child’s education in a manner appropriate to the child’s stage of development, and, if the child is not with him or her, to maintain his or her personal relationships and regular direct contacts with the child”. Order of prohibited measures: Okay, not so called, but described as “a prohibition, measures of any kind, providing for the Prohibition of the exercise of parental responsibility or rights over a child or for the administration of the child’s property”. Order of contact: defined as “an order regulating contact and direct contact between a child under the age of 18 and a person with whom the child does not live or will not live together”. Residence order : defined as “an order regulating the arrangements with whom; or to live alternately or periodically with different persons, with whom and at what time a child under the age of 16 must live. However, I will confine myself to two of them: one describes the current Scottish legislation on children in order to understand what is being proposed and the other describes the Scottish Executive’s proposals to modernise the legislation. Of course, it should be noted that Scotland appears to have continued the 1989 reforms south of the border, but has not yet replaced the 2014 reform, the ban on residence and entry, withchild care’. The welfare of children remains of paramount importance, but if I am not mistaken, the Scottish system does not have awelfare checklist’ like ours. Last week, I saw in the newspapers that the Scottish Government has published new laws to amend the Children’s Act north of the border. In fact, we tend to avoid this idea because it suggests that parents’ rights may be more important than the child’s welfare, or at least as important as that of the child. Parents’ rights’ include the ability to decide how and where a child is raised and where to live. An important difference between the laws on both sides of the border are the principles that the courts must follow when deciding whether or not to give an order to children. Specific order of costs: an order regulating a specific issue that has or may arise in relation to parental responsibility, etc. The law empowers Scottish courts to take different decisions about children.
