LR v A Local Authority & Ors (Application to Terminate Appointment of Guardian) [2019] EWFC 49

Deirdre Fottrell QC and Tom Wilson appeared on behalf of a non-party foster carer in a successful application to terminate the appointment of a Children’s Guardian within care proceedings concerning a child placed in her care.

The application was made following the foster carer’s successful appeal against a final care order, in which the Court of Appeal was critical of the approach adopted by the local authority and Children’s Guardian during the original proceedings.

It is understood that this is the first successful application by a third party for the termination of the appointment of a Children’s Guardian.
