Re K (Children) (Contact: failure to consider alternative means)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed a father's appeal against an order which both provided for his two children to live with the mother and dismissed his application for direct contact with his children, providing for there to be only indirect contact for an unspecified period of time in the future. The recorder had fallen into error by having failed to grapple with all the available alternatives before abandoning hope of achieving contact.
