Re F (A Child) (International Relocation Cases)  EWCA Civ 882
Alev Giz appeared as junior counsel for the successful Appellant Father in the landmark case of re F (A Child) (International Relocation Cases) in which the Court of Appeal, further distancing itself from Payne v Payne, decided that a holistic, comparative, balance sheet approach is required in the evaluation of the competing proposals put forward by each parent and in the analysis of the child’s welfare in relocation cases, which must be subject to a proportionality cross check by virtue of the engagement of Article 8 rights and the risk of separation from the ‘left behind’ parent. The Judgment can be found here.
L and B (Children : care proceedings)  EWFC 66
Deirdre Fottrell QC and Marlene Cayoun represented the Local Authority in the case of L and B (Children : care proceedings)  EWFC 66 in which findings were successfully obtained of serious child sexual abuse and inter-sibling sexual activity caused by long-term grooming and neglect. The circumstances required a child and a vulnerable adult to give live oral evidence about their abuse. The case is an example of how large-scale police investigations into child abuse rings can be successfully presented in the family courts for the protection of children. The judgement can be found here.
