Dealing with Social Services can be a frustrating and intimidating experience.
We are able to represent clients from the very beginning of their involvement with Social Services, with the key aim being to avoid Care Proceedings. Often parents are scared to speak out when they feel unfairly treated or are being judged harshly. With legal representation, we are able to speak up for our clients where necessary and offer legal advice throughout.
We represent clients at meetings with Social Services and will fight your corner. We have found that the earlier our involvement, the better the results. It is therefore extremely important to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.
Legal Aid is available for dealing with Social Services on your behalf.
If the Local Authority issue proceedings, we are able to use emergency legal aid to represent clients immediately. We will also personally represent you at Court, which means you always have someone who is familiar with the details of your case.
We are passionate about keeping children at home with their family, if at all possible.
