Amendment of adoption orders

In the Matter of Baby C W (Minor)

Adoption Cause No 97 of 2013

High Court at Nairobi

W M Musyoka, J

August 30, 2013

Reported by Teddy Musiga

Brief Facts:

The applicants had adopted two babies under separate adoption causes. They intended to raise the two babies as twins. They therefore made an application to court seeking to amend the adoption order earlier made in court. Their intended amendment was to have the effect of changing the birth dates of the two babies to reflect that they were born on the same day so that they could be raised as twins.

 

Issue:

  1. Whether adoption orders under the Children Act can be amended once made.

 

Family Law – Adoption – adoption orders – application to amend an adoption order – whether adoption orders under the Children Act could be amended once made – grounds for applications to amend adoption orders – Children Act, section 68, 70

Held:

  1. The scope of section 68 of the Children Act as regards the amendment of adoption orders was limited to adoption orders made under the repealed Adoption Act.
  2. The Children Act was silent on whether the adoption order made under the Children Act could be amended as there was no provision which empowered the court to effect such amendment.
  3. That notwithstanding, the General Rules and Regulations, operationalized through Legal Notice Number 77 of 2002 availed a remedy of review where a court made an error in an adoption order.
  4. The said rules imported Order XLIV of the old Civil Procedure Rules (now order 45), which provided for review into the civil process governed by Children Act.
  5. If there were errors on the face of an adoption order or discovery of matters that could not be placed before the court during the adoption hearing or for any other sufficient reason, the court seized of an adoption cause had discretion to review the order accordingly.
  6. Whereas section 170 of the Children Act gave the court discretion to determine the date of birth of a child for adoption purposes. That discretion was only exercisable in cases where the child’s precise date of birth was unknown or was not proved to the satisfaction of the court. In the instant case, the child’s date of birth was a known fact thus not subject to speculation. It was a matter with respect to which the court had no discretion as the court could not alter a fact.

Application dismissed.
