Childcare Proceedings Involving Social Services

It can be extremely distressing if, for whatever reason, Social Services have to get involved with your family or raise concerns about the care of your children.

Our child care proceedings solicitors regularly help parents who have difficulties in caring for their children and face local authority action to have their children placed in foster care or adoption. As childcare specialists and members of the Law Society’s Children Panel, we can make sure you get the right advice and will take all possible steps to protect your children’s welfare and preserve your parental rights.

If you do have to go to court, our solicitors can make sure your rights are fully protected and that you understand your situation properly, along with the options that are available to you, so it’s vital that you seek legal advice from an early stage. Appointing the right child law solicitor who you can trust and have confidence in is crucial in these cases.

Will legal support be expensive?

More often than not, you will not have to worry about legal costs in these types of cases as Legal Aid may be available.
