Infant Approval Hearing

An infant approval hearing is required once a settlement has been agreed between parties for a child’s claim. A hearing is required as a child is a protected party and approval from a judge is required. It is a short court hearing usually held in Judges’ Chambers where a Judge approves the amount of compensation agreed to be paid to a child under the age of 18. Once approved the money is usually paid into the Court Trust Fund for the child to access when he/she is 18.
