Why and in what circumstances would you have three judges sitting on the final hearing of a child contact case involving two teenagers?

Many thanks :)

Sorry, nbm off the top of my head I can't remember but has there been a section 7? In one case I read about the Judge disagreed with what CAFCASS was recommending and another judge was appointed to sit in on proceedings as well.

A bench of lay magistrates in the FPC comprises of 3; the Court of Appeal also sits as a 3.

Which level of court are you talking about.
