Public Children Law

A judge’s decision refusing to grant a mother and father contact with their three children who were living in foster care, but not permitting the local authority to refuse to facilitate contact, was contradictory and in error. All the evidence pointed to contact not being in the children’s interests, and the local authority was granted an order allowing it to refuse contact for two years, which allowed time for the police to investigate physical abuse allegations against the parents and for the children to receive therapy.
