In re B (Children) (Care orders: Standard of proof)

House of Lords

“The standard of proof necessary to establish the threshold for making a care order was the simple balance of probabilities. Neither the seriousness of any allegations nor the seriousness of the consequences should make any difference to the standard of proof to be applied in determining the facts.”
