High Court Decision re variation of Barring Order


In a recent decision Mr. Justice Max Barrett made it clear in a case of C -v- C that the High Court could not vary a Barring Order in Judicial Separation Proceedings where the Barring Order had been previously made in the District Court.


In essence, the Court was making it clear that the only circumstances in which the Barring Order could be varied would be on an appeal of the said Barring Order to the Circuit Court.


The Court did make Orders revising access arrangements in favour of the father but put a stay on same to allow the father to revert to the District Court to seek such variations to the Barring Order that would allow him to exercise the access.
