This Order may be cited as the Child Arrangements Order (Consequential Amendments to Subordinate Legislation) Order 2014 and comes into force on 22nd April 2014.

This Order makes amendments to secondary legislation in consequence of section 12 of the Children and Families Act 2014, which removes the definition of "residence order" and "contact order" in section 8(1) of the Children Act 1989 and replaces it with a new order, the "child arrangements order".
