Carson & Carson 2013 FMCAfam 9

The case involved a girl aged 5 years.  The mother had a diagnosis of anorexia nervosa that was in remission, and she was in a new relationship she found to be supportive (re-partnered).  The judge found that the father was so determined to achieve his professional goals that this clouded his decisions about the child, leading to a general perception that what is good for the father must be good for the child, an approach that is self-centered and showed that he lacked insight into the effects on the child (impact on child, personality self-centred).

The judge ordered that the child live with the mother and spend time with the father, with a period of three years before review.
