(High Court, Williams J, 6 August 2018)

Public law children – Care proceedings –Forced Marriage Protection Orders – s 63a Family Law Act 1996 – Mandatory orders – Return of children from Pakistan

The court found that the s 63A FLA 1996 threshold had been crossed at the relevant time and thus making a mandatory order was a necessary and proportionate response.
