How we can help
Here are some of the things our child care solicitors can do for you:
- We take urgent action and do everything in our power to achieve the best possible outcome when the social services have applied to have your child removed from your care via Care or Supervision Orders.
- We help grandparents obtain a special guardianship order (SGO) to take care of their grandchildren while child care proceedings are in progress.
- We offer advice on all problems that can result in care proceedings, such as allegations of abuse, the death of a parent, mental health issues, situations involving parents who are non-UK nationals.
- We liaise with the special services during an ongoing investigation to ensure that the process is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible and that the rights of you and your family are protected.
We assist and liase with the local authority to arrange contact between parents and their children who have been placed in care as a result of child care proceedings.

How much will it cost?
In most cases, Legal Aid is available for Child Care Proceedings. Parents and family members who have parental responsibility for a child or children will automatically qualify for Legal Aid and free legal advice.
If you don’t automatically qualify for Legal Aid, in certain circumstances, we can make an application for Legal Aid and our solicitors can discuss this option with you and talk to you about the circumstances where you may qualify for funding.
