DB v AB and CB

Child – Care. Following the birth of the child to two mothers who were in a civil partnership, the mothers refused the father contact with the child on the basis that had been the agreement. The father applied for contact arguing that the agreement had been that he would have a part in the life of the child and that he was not merely a sperm donor. The Family Division held that, on the balance of probabilities, it could not be argued that the father had merely agreed to be a sperm donor and there was no good reason why he should not have contact, as that was what was in the child's best interests.
