The Prospective Adopters v FB and Others [2015] EWHC 297 (Fam)
(Family Division, Moor J, 5 February 2015)

Public law children – Adoption – Mother granted permission to oppose – Improvements to lifestyle – Whether nothing else would do

Please see attached file below for the full judgment.


An adoption order was made in respect of the 2 year-old child whose mother had a history of alcohol abuse and a chaotic lifestyle. Although she was granted permission to oppose the order her improvements to her lifestyle had come too late for the welfare of the child and nothing else would do other than an adoption order.
