Family Law Hub

AEY v AL [2020] EWHC 3539 (Fam)

Knowles J had invited the father to provide written submissions as to whether the terms of an extended civil restraint order (ECRO) to control his litigation conduct, due to expire in November 2020, should be extended. The children in question were now aged 14 and 20. Since the making of the ECRO the father had made seven applications which had fallen within the remit of the ECRO, all of which had been refused, three of them having been totally without merit. Knowles J asked herself whether there was good reason to apprehend persistent vexatiousness by the father in the future, and decided that there was. The ECRO would be extended to November 2022.
