Effect of discharge

226 Effect of discharge

(1) On the making of an order discharging the final adoption order (the
"discharge order" ), the rights, privileges, duties, liabilities and relationships of the child and all other persons are the same as if the final adoption order had not been made.
(2) However, the making of the discharge order does not affect—
(a) anything lawfully done, or the consequences of anything lawfully done, while the final adoption order was in force; or
(b) a right, privilege or liability acquired, accrued or incurred while the final adoption order was in force.
(3) The discharge order does not affect a consent given to the child’s adoption unless the court decides otherwise.
(4) For the purpose of a law relating to a sexual offence for which relationships are relevant, a relationship between a child and another person that existed immediately before the making of the discharge order continues, despite the discharge order, in addition to other relationships that exist because of the discharge order.
(5) This section applies subject to an order under section 225 (5) .
