HH (A Child: Stay of Order Pending Appeal) (Rev2) [2022] EWHC 3369 (Fam) (23 December 2022) 


Dr Charlotte Proudman was instructed by solicitors on behalf of the appellant mother to apply to stay a court order for child contact whilst her appeal is pending in the High Court. The mother is appealing against a fact-finding decision in which her allegations of domestic abuse were unproven. Mostyn J set out the relevant principles and held that the mother’s application met the two stage test: 1) the grounds of appeal are not fanciful; and 2) if the terms of the contact order were implemented, the viability of the appeal would be extinguished.
