Edinburgh University Press

The Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007 amends the grounds for dispending with parental consent to adoption, and this commentary identifies potential problems (subsequently explored in case law) with the new “welfare requires” ground. The commentary also explores the new invention in the 2007 Act, the “permanence order”, and its relationship to supervision requirements and other orders.

Keywords:   Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007, Joint adoption, Dispensation with parental consent, Welfare of child, Permanency planning, Permanence orders, Supervision orders
