Family insight

Trisan Hyatt acted in the case of Z (Interim Care Order) [2020] EWCA Civ 1755, an interesting case examining issues surrounding the interim removal of children from the care of their parents. The case involved allegations of alienation relating to a 15-year-old boy with autism who had been assessed (within private proceedings) in July as not having the capacity to instruct a solicitor. In November the issue before the court was the removal of the boy from his Father's care into a foster placement pending his move to his Mother's care. The interim care order was granted with a care plan of removal.​
