This sad case has been in the news a lot over the last couple of weeks. Whatever the rights and wrongs of the court's decisions and Rebecca Minnock's actions, the case is an extreme example of what can happen when parents feud over their children. It shows that the courts take a dim view of parents who try to prevent each other seeing a child without good reason, and that judges are prepared to be tough with those who defy court orders. It is always best for parents to agree arrangements for their children if at all possible and avoid ending up in court completely.
