The penny is dropping I see. What? You haven’t twigged. The presumption of parental involvement has NOT been brought into force on April 22nd with the rest of the
Why Use One Word When Three Is So Much Less Adversarial And Straightforward Act Children & Families Act was commenced.
Nope. And what’s more there ain’t no future commencement date in the commencement orders.
I reckon this has gone the way of the ill fated CSFA 2010. That is, shelved, marked for repeal when nobody’s looking. I may be proved wrong but that is my working presumption (I guess it’s an assumption really but that would be less pleasingly repetitive).
You didn’t notice the presumption wasn’t in force so I’m betting you didn’t notice that repeal in the
C&F Act [Crime and Courts Act 2013*] either, did ya?
So, the presumption that the presumption will have little effect will have to remain just that at least for the time being.
*Thanks to JD for pointing out the wrong ref to the C&F Act 14 rather than the C&C Act 13 – have been switching between the two so much lately they are all blurred in my brain!
