Adoption and placement order law 2022

Available from: 17/06/2022

This webinar will look at recent developments in the areas of adoption and placement law, practice and procedure and will be relevant for practitioners acting for parents, extended family members, local authorities and children.

Many people are uncertain as to the role and functions of adoption panels and the difference between placing, approving and matching. How does a placement order differ from children law orders, and what is the position with the transfer of parental responsibility? How does Covid continue to impact on the way in which plans for adoption are made?

Topics include:

  • Placement orders – How do they operate, position with parental responsibility and criteria
  • Panels and processes – Approving, matching and recommending
  • Revocation of placement orders – Developing law and criteria
  • Leave to oppose making of adoption orders – Latest cases
  • When will the court grant permission to oppose?
  • Developments in adoption procedure and regulations
  • Local authority processes and procedures  and the continuing impact of Covid
  • Consideration of recent guidance surrounding breach of adoption agencies regulations – consideration of A County Council v NHS and Others [2022] EWFC 31
