FAS v Bradford Metropolitan District Council and Another: FD 13 Mar 2015

Application by FAS to adopt her first cousin once removed, MW. The application sought a convention adoption order, which is misconceived as Pakistan, MW’s homeland, is not a party to the Hague Convention of 29 May 1993 on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in respect of Inter-country Adoption. It has therefore been treated as an application for a mainstream adoption and Holman J granted leave under section 42(6) Adoption and Children Act 2002 (‘ACA’) for the adoption application to proceed.
