Leave of the court

This means ‘permission’ of the court. For example, someone may need permission to apply for a court order or to appeal a decision.

Relatives who are not a child’s parents may want the court to make an order that the child can live with them or see them regularly. They may not be able to apply for an order without the court’s permission first. They must obtain ‘leave of the court’ before starting their application.
