P & L (minors) Re, [2011] EWHC 3431 (Fam) (20 December 2011)

The court considered a non-traditional family set up where 2 siblings lived with their biological mother and her female partner and their biological Father who had PR lived with his male partner. The court had previously found the elder child in particular to be suffering harm as a result of the lack of agreement between the parties as to the role the men should play in the lives of the children. The court ordered monthly staying contact between the men and the younger child and ordered the matter to be reviewed in 12 months.
