Contact Arrangement
A contact order is one of the many arrangements available to Family Courts. Such an arrangement basically allows the custodian to allow him/her have contact with whoever is named on the arrangement. If the child/children lives with one parent, for instance, a contact order may be necessary to allow the child see, visit or stay with the other parent. A contact arrangement is necessary if there is a disagreement between parents on whom the child should be in contact with.

Residence Order
A residence order is a ruling from the court on where a child will reside or live. Such an arrangement can be granted to more than one person, for instance, an unmarried couple. In most cases, such a ruling is meant to last until the child turns 16, unless in exceptional cases where the court rules that it continues longer.

A residence order can also prevent anyone from changing the childs surname within this period without an arrangement from the court or a mutual agreement of everyone given the parental responsibility of the child.

However, this doesnt apply in Scotland as a resident arrangement does not hinder a change in the childs surname.
