Miss Gregg represented the children’s guardian in long running private law proceedings arising out of the father’s application for shared residence.
The orders proposed by the children’s guardian were described by the Court as being at the most extreme end of the spectrum of the Children Act orders. Those orders included a Prohibitive Steps Order limiting the father’s exercise of his parental responsibility to prevent him from tracing the children, a Specific Issue Order was made to permit the mother to change the children’s surname, a Family Assistance Order was made to enable the guardian to assist in the provision of indirect contact. Finally a section 91(14) order was made for a period of five years to protect the children from expose to indiscriminate applications.
