Relevant non-guardians - new rules about consultation
Since 1 January 2018, new procedures are in place about consulting relevant non-guardians about placements for adoption.
Relevant non-guardians include:
- a father of a child who is not a guardian of the child;
- a person who has been appointed the guardian of a child but who has not been granted certain rights of guardianship;
- a person appointed by the court to be a temporary guardian of a child; and
- a parent of a donor-conceived child who is not a guardian of the child.
