The Case

Family proceedings Orders in family proceedings. L's father brutally murdered his mother in a very premeditated and carefully planned attack. The matter came before the court in order to decide whether L should move to live permanently with his maternal grandparents, who lived in a city in China; or with his father's sister, his paternal aunt, and her husband, who lived in a town in South East England. The Family Court held that it was in L's best interests to live with his aunt and uncle.
