Is Madeleine still a ward of court?

Post  jejune on Sun 8 Apr - 19:09

I remember the reason being given for this in the first place was that, if Madeleine was found, she could be returned to her parents without them having to go through a legal process of establishing their 'rights' to her. Down the line, is this still a logical reason for handing over the rights over a child to a public court?

No Willing, Legal Guardian Available

In order to be determined a ward of the state, the child cannot have a willing and competent biological parent who is able to take care of the child. Relatives and other adults also have the opportunity to become the legal guardian for the child prior to him or her being made a ward of the state. Other adults who have a close relationship to the child, such as foster parents and teachers, will be considered as legal guardians for the child before making him or her a ward of the state.

Why was Madeleine made a ward of court, and does this ruling still apply?

AFAIK It's never been rescinded. Didn't the McCanns have to "drop" Madeleine from their claim against Tony Bennett, the last I heard they were only claiming damages from themselves and the twins.

I've never read that anywhere before jejune. Proceedings to make Madeleine a Ward of Court began shortly after her disappearance on 17th May 2007. I thought the reason was to make more information available to them. It was during the hearing when the McCanns took Leicester police to court to get them to release more info to them that it was revealed that Madeleine had been made a Ward of Court on 2nd April 2008.
