Article summary

Family analysis: In M v D the appellant appealed against a refusal to make a non-molestation order under the Family Law Act 1996 (FLA 1996) in relation to a respondent who was the stepson of the appellant’s sister (ie, the appellant’s step-nephew). The district judge at first instance had found that the relationship between the appellant and the respondent was not one which fell within the jurisdiction of FLA 1996 for the making of a non-molestation order. That finding was upheld on appeal. Alex Fletcher, barrister, at Normanton Chambers summarises the issues. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
