AA v BB

Parent and child – Contact – Parental rights and responsibilities. Sheriff Court: Allowing an appeal against a sheriff's interlocutor depriving the father of a child of all his parental rights and responsibilities and refusing to make a contact order, the court held that the sheriff had erred in refusing to make a contact order in favour of the appellant, attaching too little weight to the parent-child relationship and too much weight to the appellant's two convictions, and the proper course now was to suspend rather than deprive him of his parental rights and responsibilities.
