OK, this is from April, but I am genuinely surprised that it has not ‘surfaced’ before!

A family court in Nottingham sentenced a mother to 56 days for contempt of court. The sentence was suspended for one year which means that should she continue to be ‘unwilling’ in that time period to abide by the terms of the child arrangement order she will go to jail.

A signal against parental alienation, and parents that think they can get away with just not letting absent parents see their children.

But do you know what the really sad thing about this case is?

The contact that she was refusing was a holiday, not an overnight stay, not even a day out. It was a single hour each week at a contact centre.

Simply disgraceful.
