Re N (A Child: Section 37: Interim Care Order)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The father applied for variation of a shared residence order concerning a seven-year-old boy, N. The Family Court held that N had suffered emotional harm both as a result of the ongoing hostility between his parents, and because of the way his mother had immersed him in her religious beliefs and practices as a Jehovah's Witness. As neither of the parents could be relied upon to meet N's emotional needs, the shared care order should not continue. Interim removal would be a proportionate response to N's need for protection and an interim care order would be made.
