Senior high court judge to address issues in ‘parental alienation’ cases

One of Britain’s most senior judges is to examine issues relating to the regulation of court-appointed experts who provide evidence about child welfare in private custody hearings – and, in particular, where “parental alienation” is a feature.

Sir Andrew McFarlane, the president of the family division of the high court, will oversee an appeal later this month brought by a mother who challenged the qualifications of a court-appointed expert who found she had “alienated” her children from their father.

The mother, who had her children permanently removed from her care against their wishes, alleged Melanie Gill was “not an appropriately qualified expert” and not regulated by any professional body.
