Order for a father seeking contact with a young child

Private Law (Child Arrangements Programme (CAP))

29 November 2023

Louisa acted for the father in a case where the mother was totally opposed to there being any contact between the father and his child on the grounds of his history of mental health difficulties.

An expert was instructed to assess any risks posed by the father and then a gradual introduction and extension of extension resulted in the mother’s concerns being allayed, the father enjoying contact with his child and the relationship between the parents improving dramatically.
