“This case concerns the Court’s authority to fulfill a Child’s request to hug and see her Father”

Father and daughter
So begins a recent decision from the Family Part, and it only tugs at your heart strings more as you read the rest of the opinion. I will not attempt to describe the court's decision in R.R. v. L.A.C. because I could not improve on the court's succinct and poignant recitation of this sad, then even more sad, then touching, and finally hopeful story of a broken family that is (hopefully) on its way to being repaired. The opinion is short and worth reading (but be forewarned, if you are prone to tears, then you should have tissues handy when you do).
