Prospective Adopters v IA

Adoption – Application. A child born in 2008 with serious disabilities which required a high level of care was authorised for adoption with existing carers. The father applied to the court for permission to oppose the adoption pursuant to s 47(5) of the Adoption and Children Act 2002. The Family Division held that recent developments in the law constituted a change in circumstances and further the father's prospects of success were not fanciful.
