Consultation on the listing of final hearings in adoption cases

19 Jan 2016 | 1 min read

The President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, has issued revised guidance on the listing of final hearings in adoption cases with a view to it replacing the President’s Guidance: Listing Final Hearings in Adoption cases of 3 October 2008 issued by the then President Sir Mark Potter. The President has indicated that recent cases have shown that the current guidance requires up-dating.

The proposed revised guidance can be accessed here: President’s Guidance Listing Final Hearings in Adoption Cases.
