What’s a contact order?

It’s an official court document that states when, where and for how long the parent you don’t live with can see you. The judge makes a decision on what the contact should be based on your needs and your parents’ needs. Contact can sometimes be indirect, such as phone calls and letters; but most often it is direct contact – that is, face-to-face time. Sometimes, the judge will order ‘staying’ contact which means that you get to stay overnight (at certain times) with your other parent.
