The mother (defender) and father (pursuer) remain married to each other but divorce proceedings are pending following their split in July 2004. The only issue here was whether the father should have a residence order to both his children and, if not, what should be the proper arrangement for contact. The evidence at proof disclosed an atmosphere of distrust and hostility between the parties. The court here looked at the personal and living circumstances of the pursuer, in Wallyford, and the defender, in Crookston, Glasgow, in determining what would be best for the two children aged seven and five.
