Re W (Children) (adoption proceedings: leave to oppose)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. In the course of care proceedings in relation to two children, B and M, the judge made an order stating, so far as relevant, that the court made an adoption order in respect of B to the applicants to be made seven days from that date and that the court had approved an adoption order in respect of M, such order to be made upon notification to the court that M had undertaken a procedure for circumcision. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that it had been the misapplication of the relevant legal and procedural framework that was, in large measure, the reason why it had no option but to allow the appeal.
