Re S (A child): (child arrangements order: effect of long term supervised contact on welfare

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the father's appeal against the refusal of his application for direct supervised contact with his daughter, held that the judge had failed adequately to give reasons, either for his rejection of the recommendation of the CAFCASS officer or generally, for refusing the application. In so far as the reason for dismissing the father's application was, as it appeared, to be a principled objection to long-term supervised contact, such an approach had been wrong in law.
