Re A and B (Children) (fact-finding hearing) [2015] EWFCB48

[2015] EWFC B48 (20 March 2015)

Barrister: Abigail Bond
Summary: Represented the father in a fact-finding hearing within care proceedings in which much of the local authority’s case rested on allegations made by the 10 year old child against his father. The Judge rejected most of the findings sought by the local authority and is critical of both the local authority and the guardian for failing to assess the quality of the evidence upon which they relied before placing it before the court. The care proceedings were subsequently withdrawn.
