Our expert says:
Courts do at times make fatuously stupid decisions, unfortunately. It sounds most odd for them to give children who have been previously neglected by her, to an alcoholic mother, even if she is not drinking at present. Sounds like his lawyers may have been less than effective. Did the court know about the lesbian relationship, at his expense ? I hope he has still got access to the children, and can remain available to them when, as seems fairly likely, the mothers slides out of control again.
And I agree that the case should be discussed with the Family Advocate, at least so as to prime the pump if the matter of custody and maintenance has to be revisited if the mother slips up again
