STOP PRESS : Proceedings concerning parents with a learning disability

On 10th April 2018, Sir James Munby issued guidance in relation to parents with a learning disability. The purpose of this ‘is to bring to the attention of practitioners and judges, and to commend for careful consideration and application by everyone, the very important “Good practice guidance on working with parents with a learning disability” issued by the Working Together with Parents Network and the Norah Fry Centre in September 2016’.

The guidance highlights recent case law (Re D (Non-Availability of Legal Aid) (No 2) [2015] EWFC 2, [2015] 1 FLR 1247, and again in Re D (Adoption) (No 3) [2016] EWFC 1, [2017] 1 FLR 237) and the Family Procedure Rules Part 3A and PD3AA.
