CWFL represents parent in significant High Court case

Published by Mark Tattersall in Children · 16/12/2016 15:55:40

My colleague, Julie McGovern, recently acted for a mother in care proceedings whose children were removed from her care after the mother and her husband had been stopped at Folkestone, with the children in their car, the authorities believing they intended to travel to Syria.  The children were returned to their parents’ care shortly after removal but the court proceedings continued and were concluded only some 18 months later.  The (High Court) judge concluded at the final hearing that anti-radicalisation work that was carried out with the family seemed to have been successful and discharged the temporary care orders that had been made about the children, saying there had been “in very many ways a positive outcome to proceedings”.  The judgment given at the hearing can be seen here:  Mark Tattersall, partner at Chivers Walsh Family Law.
