July 5th - Mid Year Children Update

Presented by Jack Rundall, Pump Court Chambers

4 Cases dealings with whether or not contact between a child and a father should be stopped:

(1) Re A (A Child -Appeal- Termination of contact) [2019] EWHC 132 (Fam)

(2) Re A [2019] EWHC 612 (Fam)

In both the above the court overturned earlier decisions on the basis that not enough had been done to attempt to promote a child’s relationship with his or her father. I will contrast those with:

(3) Re G (Children: Intractable Dispute) [2019] EWCA Civ 458

(4) PM v CF [2018] EWHC 2658 (Fam)

In both the above the court was persuaded that a father should be prevented from having any contact with his child.

I’ll then discuss (5) Re K (Children) EWCA Civ 184 and (6) Re A (Children: Fact Finding : Appeal [2019] EWCA Civ 74 which both discuss the circumstances in which findings of fact can be set aside.

Then I’ll cover (6) S v D (Hague Convention: Domestic Abuse: Undertakings: Return to Third State [2019] EWHC 56 (Fam) and Re C (Children)(Abduction: Article 13(b)) EWCA Civ 2834 which consider the test under article 13(b) of the Hague Convention for resisting the return of a child based on alleged risks of physical and psychological harm.
