Ben Butler has provided a case summary of Re H [2024] EWHC 1191 (Fam).


This judgement was handed down by Mrs Justice Lieven DBE on the 17th May 2024. H, a girl aged 3, was the subject child in the Court of Appeal judgment Re H (Parents with Learning Difficulties: Risk of Harm) [2023] EWCA Civ 59. The LA issued proceedings in respect of H at birth, but H has remained in the care of her parents since birth.

The issue before the court was whether H should be permitted to go abroad with her parents for a holiday in June. A short oral hearing was held on the 7th May 2024 with further written evidence.
