Family Law

The leading authority on all aspects of family law

08 AUG 2012

LOCAL AUTHORITY:Sheffield CC v Bradford MBC

(Family Division, Bodey J, 22 June 2012) 

The 14-year-old boy was born in Bradford and lived there with his family until his paternal aunt began caring for him in Sheffield. The judge found that none of the time the boy spent in Sheffield should be disregarded and, therefore, following Re H (Care: Local Authority) he was ordinarily resident in Sheffield.

Sheffield CC appealed. Re H was no longer applicable due to the enactment of s 22C of the Act and the judge had erred in applying the old approach. However, the boy had become ordinarily resident in Sheffield and that was, therefore, the appropriate local authority.
