Wardship is an area that is not often well understood by practitioners. It is an area that fits into various areas of family law, in different ways. This practical webinar will provide you with an understanding of the various ways in which wardship is used, particularly as to how it applies in children law proceedings. There are situations where this may be used for children have been, or are at risk of abduction, as well as for their personal protection. This is an important part of the court's jurisdiction, which you need to be aware of, in terms of its uses and operation. Sometimes, situations arise whereby one has to act in an emergency, and therefore being aware of what can be done through wardship is essential.
