Re H-B (Children) (Contact)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The judge refused the father's application for direct contact with his two daughters and made an order under s 91(14) of the Children Act 1989. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the father's appeal against the orders. It held, inter alia, that there was nothing in the chronology of the proceedings that would lead the court to criticise the way in which the legal system had handled the case. The orders that the judge had made as to contact and under s 91(14) of the Act had been open to him in accordance with the law and nothing said in argument had persuaded the court that he had erred in proceeding as he had.
