CONTACT:Re C (Indirect Contact)

(Court of Appeal, Thorpe, Hallett, McFarlane LJJ, 25 July 2012)

The views of all the professionals involved with the family were that the child should have no contact with her father but the judge decided that the father should receive a photo of the child each year.

The local authority appealed. The judge had not understood the professionals' evidence. There had been inadequate consideration of the child's position and the potential violation of her rights. The judgment was insufficiently and erroneously reasoned and so the appeal would be allowed.
