RESIDENCE: Re S (Transfer of Residence)

(Family Division; HHJ Bellamy; 11 August 2010)

In response to mother's hostility to contact and the child's alienation from his father, the judge ordered the transfer of care.  This did not happen because of the child's persistent opposition and mother's apparent health problems. The local authority initiated care proceedings and judge considered forced transfer better than foster care. Court of Appeal disagreed and ordered an interim care order for the purpose of introducing the child to father [Re S (A Child) [2010] EWCA Civ 325].

The parties subsequently consented to order for residence order in the mother's favour with a supervision order for one year. The father was to have indirect contact only, and any other contact only should child request it.
