Enabling a Father to spend Christmas with his child

Marie represented a Father in an application to vary a CAO, adjusting the time he spends with his child. He was seeking a more defined order in relation to holiday contact than previously, seeking half of all the holidays.

At the first hearing (FHDRA) nearly all matters were agreed save arrangements for Christmas contact, and this matter was listed for hearing.

At that hearing Marie successfully argued that he should have the child for the first Christmas and thereafter contact should be alternated annually
