Why Choose Us?

Supporting You During Child Care Proceeding

With one of the largest teams of specialist Child Care solicitors in the country, Cartwright King provides expert advice and support in relation to arrangements for children post-separation, previously referred to as ‘child custody’ and child law cases. Whatever your circumstances, you can rely on our child care solicitors to deal with your case professionally and without judgment. You can be sure that we will do everything we can to keep your family together.

Legal Aid is likely available to you when you request the assistance of our solicitors, regardless of your financial position. Legal Aid is available free of charge for parents if the Local Authority has applied for a Care Order or a Supervision Order.

How our Child Care Solicitors can help

At Cartwright King, our family law solicitors are highly experienced in supporting parents when social services have become involved with the care of a child.

Our team are able to:

  • Take urgent action to ensure you are represented when the social services have applied to have your child removed from your care via Care or Supervision Orders.
  • Advise grandparents and other family members while child care proceedings are in progress.
  • 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.
  • Liaise with the social 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.

Assist and liaise 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.
