Re CT (CFC) [2019] (unreported) HHJ Robin Tolson QC

I represented and advocated for a child in private law Children Act proceedings. A children’s Guardian had been appointed for the child under rule 16(4). The mother was a litigant in person and was intractably hostile to any contact with the father. The mother was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work under s11J-L of the Children Act 1989 for breaching a Child Arrangements Order requiring her to use her best endeavours to encourage the child to read the fathers letters and give the child a mobile phone. This was one of the first uses of this power.
Joy Brereton was for the father; the mother was a litigant in person
