Guidance in cases involving the Official Solicitor

This Guidance, issued in December 2010, has been endorsed by both the Official Solicitor and the President of the Family Division. It was issued following a meeting between the Official Solicitor and the President in which they discussed the difficulties which the Official Solicitor had been having in accepting requests to act as guardian ad litem / litigation friend for protected parties in proceedings relating to children. The Official Solicitor's role in proceedings under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 was also discussed. At the end of the meeting the President invited Pauffley J to draft guidance for courts dealing with such cases.
