An Aunt and A Mother and A Father and in the matter of RT and SU (A male child ages 7 years and 9 months and a female child ages 5 years and 9 months)

6 Apr 2022
IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE IN NORTHERN IRELAND FAMILY DIVISION OFFICE OF CARE AND PROTECTION

This is an application by an Aunt for adoption orders in relation to her nephew who is 7 years and 9 months and her niece who is aged 5 years and 9 months. The parents are objecting, and the Mother is refusing to give her agreement. As there has never been a care order in place for either child, the Trust is 2 not a party to the proceedings, however it has provided reports on each child in accordance with its obligations under the Adoption (NI) Order 1987 (“the 1987 Order”). A guardian ad litem (“the GAL”) was appointed to represent the interests of the children and has provided two reports. She did not seek legal representation.
