Representing a child and Guardian where the parents could not agree contact

Private Law (Child Arrangements Programme (CAP))

29 November 2023

Marie represented a child and Guardian, who was appointed under Rule 16.4 in this private law case. The Father sought contact with the child and the Mother was implacably hostile to contact, hence the need for a Guardian to be appointed.

Both Parties had made domestic abuse allegations against each other and a four-day fact-finding hearing was listed.
