Private Children Law

Catherine Wood QC and Charlotte Baker (instructed by Selby Lowndes Family Solicitors) acted for the Appellant father

This is an appeal by a father against an interim child arrangements order made in long-running proceedings concerning his three children, who I shall refer to as A, B and C, all girls aged 17, 15 and 9 respectively. The central question arising on the appeal is whether the judge’s decision to vary the existing “nesting” arrangement, under which the children remained living in the former family home while their parents move in and out depending on when it is their turn to provide care, was unfair or wrong.
