The recent decision in P.C.L., by her Litigation Guardians, E.C. et. al. v The Estate of B.L. et. al. considered in what circumstances a person will be found to have demonstrated a “settled intention” to treat an individual as a child, particularly in the context of a SLRA dependant’s support application. Notably, in this case, the court distinguished between an intention and a settled intention, and found on these particular facts that there was no settled intention.
