(Family Division, HHJ Cleary, 4 July 2012) 

The parents emigrated with their 13-year old child to the UK from South Africa. The mother's older child by a previous partner had been abducted by his father in South Africa. The mother who was still grieving for her son devoted a lot of energy to searching for him.

The mother and father separated when they moved to the UK and the mother's new partner had bipolar affective disorder. There was evidence that the 13-year old had been emotionally distressed from a young age. She was placed with her father for some periods but when that placement broke down she was accommodated under s 20 of the Children Act 1989. Arrangements were currently in place for supervised contact with both the mother and father.

The local authority was granted a final care order and supervised contact would continue with the parents six times per year. A s 91(14) order was put in place until the girl's 16th birthday.
