The President of the Family Law Division has sated that he has concerns about the recurrent inadequacies of the analysis and reasoning put forward in support of the case for adoption of children, both in the materials put before the court by the local authorities and guardians, and also in too many judgments.
Naomi Angell, who is the co-chair of the Law Society’s family law committee agreed and stated that;
“Adoption is such an extreme order there must be proper evidence provided to the judge, including looking at all other, less drastic options.”
Local Authorities, Guardians and Judges must ‘up their game’ because if judges stick rigidly to the 26 week limit in cases where evidence to support adoption cases is inadequate, ‘injustice could be done’.
