Case study:

Steven advised the client in this case which resulted in joint guardianship.

The Sheriff Appeal Court has ruled that a sheriff who awarded sole guardianship of a 24-year-old man with autism to his mother without a proof hearing should have ordered one before making a decision.

Colin Boyle, the father of the adult “Andrew” appealed against the order granted in favour of Andrew’s mother Molly Denton on the basis that a proof ought to have been fixed, and that the sheriff’s decision did not contain satisfactory reasoning. The appellant, who moved to Ireland following the parties’ separation, had changed his position over the course of proceedings to seek joint guardianship of his son.

The appeal was heard by Sheriff Principal Aisha Anwar, with Appeal Sheriffs Fiona Tait and Brian Mohan. D Anderson, advocate, appeared for the appellant and Leighton, advocate, for the respondent.
