Re W (A Child) (contact proceedings: interim care order)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. In the course of private law contact proceedings, the mother had made serious allegations against the father. Following a fact finding hearing, the judge found those allegations to be false and made an interim care order in respect of the child. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that there had been no procedural unfairness or irregularity in the process that had led to the order and that, where, in the circumstances, there had been only one realistic option, the judge had not erred in having made the order that he had.
