The following Family practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A care order ends when the child reaches 18 or if brought to an end in another way. A child arrangements order naming a person as one with whom the child is to live, or special guardianship order brings a care order, including an interim care order (ICO), to an end. An adoption order extinguishes a care order. A placement order suspends, but does not extinguish, a care order, and the care order is reactivated if the placement order is revoked. Any contact order under section 34 of the Children Act 1989 (ChA 1989) is discharged by a placement order, so any necessary contact orders prior to adoption will then be made under section 26 of the Adoption and Children Act 2002 (ACA 2002). A care order ceases to have effect if the child is lawfully taken to live in Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.
There must be regular reviews of the cases of children in care, and as one obligation is to decide whether there should be any change in the child’s legal status, the local authority should make its own application for discharge if that is appropriate and not wait for someone else to apply.
