I (father) have a uk court order to see my 4 year old daughter

Customer Question

I (father) have a uk court order to see my 4 year old daughter every other weekend, half holidays and one evening in week. I have PR. I have court case in uk family court due, where daughter's mother (muslim), wants a prohibite steps order to prevent me feeding my daughter non halal meat and no pork during my access. Irrespective of other circumstances (e.g. mother's arguing I agreed to bring daughter up as muslim, I'm white christan etc) would such a prohibive steps order be against my human rights under uk law or european law?

Yes I think that you have a very good argument that it is against both yours and the child's human rights (Art 8). This is a rare dispute and I think it would be a very difficult for the court to enforce in any event - how would you prove compliance? I hope that this helps. Please rate positive

would I be able to appeal such a court ruling in uk or european court, or would I still need court to assess whether I had grounds to appeal?
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
You would need to deal with it within the UK and seeking any permission to appeal. I hope this helps. Please rate positive

Hi
Thank you for your question.
In fact the agreements made at the time of or prior to the birth of the child could well be be crucial to the issue - and eating pork is not a "human right "as such

HOWEVER and for clarity I think my colleague has made the crucial point - how can it be adequately enforced - and for that reason I shall opt out so that you can accept his answer
