More about our Child Protection Services

We can advise and offer legal representation on issues including:

  • Care Proceedings - including where social workers may seek to remove children into foster care under care orders.

  • Emergency Hearings

  • Supervision Orders

  • Police Protection Orders

  • Special Guardianship Orders

  • Representation at first Child Protection Conference meetings

  • Representation at PLO (pre-proceedings) meetings

  • Parental Responsibility

  • Secure Accommodation Orders

  • Adoption

  • Advice to Grandparents or other Family members

  • Advice to other Family members who may be Accused of Having Harmed a Child.

Our Child Protection Solicitors can advise you on how to respond to your specific situation, including at meetings with social workers before Court proceedings are issued, or where you need representation in Court.

Funding Your Case

When care proceedings are issued, parents (or others with Parental Responsibility) are entitled to free legal representation through Legal Aid whatever their financial circumstances. This also applies in PLO meetings (pre-proceedings).

If you aren’t facing care proceedings, or if you’re not a parent or person with Parental Responsibility, you may still get Legal Aid.

We’d be happy to assess your eligibility to receive Legal Aid before you decide to proceed.

Accreditations

We have several Solicitors with Law Society Children Law Scheme accreditation, who are regularly instructed to represent the interests of children in care proceedings and offer an extra level of specialism to the teams.
