Settlement Approval (Disabled or Minor Persons)


Summary

This practice note sets out the rules surrounding the approval of a settlement where the interests of a person under disability, a minor or an unborn or unascertained person are at stake. The Public Guardian and Trustee or the Children’s Lawyer as the case may be should be put on notice in these situations and no settlement will be binding on that person without judicial approval — Ian Hull, Hull & Hull LLP.
