The Family Law Company understands the distress that can be caused should you receive a call from Social Services, which is why we provide straightforward, no-nonsense advice and representation.
If concerns about child safety are received from any source, Social Services are duty bound to investigate. This may result in protective measures that can include Court proceedings for care or supervision orders, or orders regarding the education of a child where a child is failing to receive education.
Should this happen to you and your family ‒ whether you are a parent, grandparent or other family member ‒ it is vital that you obtain expert legal advice as soon as possible. The Family Law Company’s expert Care team has outstanding experience in dealing with such cases, as well as cases where adoption is an issue.
As your legal advisor, we will assist you prior to and during child protection investigations as well as any Court proceedings, helping to minimise the emotional strain on your family. Our main priority is to ensure a client’s case is put to the Court in a professional, child-focused manner.
We understand the process from the perspective of both parents and children, and we are often appointed by a Court Appointed Representative called a ‘Children’s Guardian’ to represent the interests of children in Care Proceedings.
Our solicitors working in Children Law are members of the Law Society’s Children Panel, as well as being accredited Resolution specialists showing the expertise and specialist knowledge they have.
