Re CK: Derby CC v BA [2021] EWHC 2931 (Fam)

This judgement concerns issues relating to:

  • Deprivation of liberty – children
  • Inherent jurisdiction cases

Relevance of DOL Practice Guidance “[W]hilst accepting that an unwillingness or inability on the part of a placement to comply with the terms of the President’s Practice Guidance is a factor that informs the overall best interests evaluation on an application under the inherent jurisdiction, and that each case will turn on its own facts, I am satisfied that that the court should not ordinarily countenance the exercise the inherent jurisdiction where an unregistered placement makes clear that it will not or cannot comply with the requirement of the Practice Guidance to apply expeditiously for registration as mandated by law.”
