Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The judge after a fact finding hearing found that nine specific allegations made by the local authority in relation to six children had taken place. Following certain retractions of the allegations the matter was remitted to the same judge who did not find the retractions credible and following a further fact finding hearing, the conclusion was that there should be residence orders in respect of the two elder children, a special guardianship order in respect of the youngest child and special guardianship orders in respect of the other three children. The father appealed and the Family Court dismissed his appeal finding that the findings of the judge were unassailable.
