Re N (A Child: Interim Care Order: Interim Removal)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The local authority issued care proceedings concerning a seven-year-old boy, N, who was the subject of a shared residence order. The issue for the Family Court was whether N should be removed from the care of his parents. It held that N had suffered and continued to suffer significant emotional harm. Persisting with the present shared care arrangement was not in his present welfare interests and placement with his father was inappropriate. Accordingly, the change required was that N be removed from the care of his parents and placed with experienced foster carers.
