FAMILIES NEED FATHERS – THE LIMITS TO LITIGATIONIn January 2010, a wholly deserving father was granted a residence order. As a consequence S, his twelve-year-old son, would have to leave his mother’s home and go to live with him and his new family.  Seven months later, in July 2010, the father left the court in tears having accepted that it was futile to continue with his struggle to activate the residence order. S had indulged in such negative behaviour, described in court as indicative of serious and entrenched parental alienation, that the father gave in to the child’s demands to remain with his mother, and a consent order was made to that effect.
