Family proceedings Orders in family proceedings. Where a grandmother appealed against a final care order in respect of her three grandchildren, disputing various findings of fact, the appeal would be dismissed. In the instant case, there had been sufficient evidence available to the magistrates to make the findings of fact which they had. The implication from those findings was that the grandmother had failed to put the children's emotional needs first.
