In re S (a child) (Financial Provision): CA 9 Nov 2004

The child’s mother sought financial assistance to travel to Sudan to visit her child who was being unlawfully restrained there by the father, and to seek his return.
Held: The 1989 Act gave the court power to make an order for the benefit of the child. That provision was to be read widely, and the court had power to make such provision, and it was ordered.
