After Placement Orders – Revocation and Opposing Adoption
There have been significant developments in this field over the last few years, yet many practitioners remain unfamiliar with what steps to take once a placement order has been granted.
This is a practical bite size session and will detail the procedure when applying to revoke a placement order and the test which applies.
Whilst offering commentary on key case law developments in this area, lecturer Safda Mahmood will detail why the welfare of the child is of paramount importance and will encourage viewers to examine at what point a child is ‘placed’ and how this will affect any application for leave to revoke a placement order.
In addition, the 2-stage process when making an application under s.47, and the criteria which applies in terms of leave to oppose making of adoption orders, will also be discussed.
