These are the following things to look out for today:
- HMCTS reform online event: Family public law and adoption – Starts Today at 1pm (You can submit questions online during the conference)
- Fresh judgment criticising the separation of siblings in care proceedings (Involves a poorly qualified expert and social services ignoring the care plan advising the siblings be kept together)
- New judgment criticising a senior family court judge for his abysmal handling of a child contact case involving serious sexual assault (The judge in question was Robin Tolson QC)
Ian Josephs said:
Of course they separate brothers and sisters whenever they can. Anything goes if it helps to alienate children from their parents . Siblings have a bond through having the same parent(s) and by separating them so they cannot discuss their parents and say how much they miss them makes it much easier to keep them lonely and subdued in strange foster homes
The case quoted above illustrates how social workers can break court orders with impunity disregarding a judge who has ordered that contact between siblings must be maintained with no punishment at all. Any unfortunate mum who breaks a court order is ruthlessly jailed more often than not..
