G (Children) [2012] EWCA Civ 1434

In a case well-known for earlier decisions (including HL decisions) regarding children of lesbian parents, which had resulted in a shared residence order with the children living with their biological mother in Cornwall, contact had been problematic over a number of years. The CA allowed an appeal by the non-biological mother against the replacement of the shared residence order with a sole residence order and remitted the matter for re-trial by the western circuit liaison judge.The CA noted the difficulties caused by lack of public funding.
