Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The appeal arose out of private law proceedings between the father and the mother in relation to their two children, BF and CF. The judge dismissed the father's applications for a residence order in respect of CF and for direct contact with both CF and BF. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the father's appeal, held, inter alia, that the judge had been well aware that the father had, to some extent, been marginalised by some of the professionals and it was clear that she had factored that into her assessment of his case.
