Re AB (a child) (contact orders: fact-finding hearing)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Court discharged an order for a fact-finding hearing in the father's application for contact orders with his son, aged three-and-three-quarters when that application had been made in 2013, as a fact-finding hearing was not necessary, proportionate and fair. It further ordered the mother to ensure that the child was returned to England from Poland, as the child's welfare insisted that risks to his relationship with his father should not be taken.
