Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. In care proceedings concerning two children, the father sought to look after the children alone in Turkey, a plan supported by the mother. The local authority and children's guardian sought that the children stay with their foster parents, who should have the status of special guardians. The Family Court held that, in the circumstances, the best interests of the children would not be served by placing them with their father. Special guardianship orders were granted and plans for contact were approved.
