In the case of Wragge & Wragge saw an application by child’s maternal grandparents for a child to live with them. The child's mother opposed the Application and wanted the child to live with her despite the circumstances which saw the child living with maternal grandparents in the interim. The mother argued the child lived with the her prior to proceedings commencing and argued that this was necessary as there was a separation of siblings.
The Court had to decide who the child lives with and who the child should spend time and communicate with in circumstances where there are Allegations of violence and unacceptable risk to the child.
It was held by the Court that child live with the maternal grandparents and that they have sole parental responsibility. The Court further Ordered that the mother spend time with the child on a supervised basis only.
