The Cafcass report will not always dictate the outcome of children proceedings
01 September 2010
We represented a client in relation to difficulties he was experiencing in maintaining regular contact with his three children. As a result court proceedings were issued to ensure our client was able to see the children on a regular basis. Our client’s ex-partner was not co-operating with any proceedings and raised a number of issues with regard to his ability to have contact with the children.
A report was prepared for the court which recommended that our client only be allowed contact with his children at a supervised centre. However, we were able to display to the court that the report had not been prepared properly and that we were not satisfied with the contents of the report’s conclusions. As a result we were able to secure an order from the court which awarded our client both visiting contact with the children twice a week and staying overnight contact.
