We specialise as children panel lawyers in working with parents and children involved with social services. Regrettably, there are circumstances where a local authority wants to take action to remove children from parents and place them in social services care. We have extensive experience of acting for parents, children, grandparents and other extended family members in cases involving social services and children. In these cases the court treats the welfare of the children as paramount.
We deal with these difficult cases with the sensitivity gained over many years of practice. This is an area requiring empathy and specific skills. We offer experienced male and female solicitors in working with these cases. We offer advice to parents on all aspects of social services involvement with children and parents such as:-
- Child in Need Plans
- Child Protection Plans / Conferences
- Section 37 Assessments
- PLO Meetings
- Emergency Protection Orders (EPO)
- Care Proceedings
- Interim Care Orders (ICO)
- Interim Supervision Orders (ISO)
- Special Guardianship Orders
