What does the order mean?
There must be a person remaining in the home capable of taking responsibility for the child's protection and a power of arrest may be attached to the order (section 62, Children (Guernsey and Alderney) Law 2008).
An exclusion order can last for a maximum of 1 year. If it is made without giving notice to the excluded person it can only be in place for 5 days.
Various ancillary orders may be made, including regulating contact, payment of rent or mortgage, safeguarding the possessions of the excluded person (section 61, Children (Guernsey and Alderney) Law 2008).
