Grandfather gets Interim Residence Order – Coronation Street

by McKenzie on March 11, 2010

in Family Law on TV

It could only happen on TV…

An ex parte (without notice to the other side for the non legals) Interim Residence Order granted for a grandfather in his late 60’s/early 70’s.

Best bit was that there is a hearing next Wednesday where a final decision will be taken!

Oh how I laughed.

In reality it would take CAFCASS about 10 weeks to allocate a reporter, a return day to court would be months not a week away, and no decision could be reached except by consent within a week.

I fully expect CAFCASS to be bleating on about how following Coronation St their officers are now under increased pressure to produce reports in double quick time, and they need more money otherwise the service will collapse…..TIMMMMMMBERRRRRR…
