Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The respondent mother, SU, had a child, Z, with her partner, DE. The applicant local authority had removed SU's seven previous children in care proceedings. Following Z's birth, she was placed under an interim care order, but rehabilitation proceedings were later commenced. The authority then directed that rehabilitation stop, despite nothing untoward having occurred, and sought a care order and a placement order. The Family Court, in dismissing the application, held that adoption would be entirely inappropriate and that Z should return to live with her parents.
