A City Council v DC & Ors [2013] EWHC 8 (Fam) (11.01.13)

The court gave guidance on how to manage applications to revoke freeing orders in situations where children had been left ‘statutory orphans’ after the failure of care plans for adoption. Inter alia all such applications should be made to the high court and even former parents who made a declaration under 18(6) Adoption Act 1976 should be respondents to the application.
