Legal Action involving Social Services

We are experienced in representing clients in cases concerning the Local Authority (Social Services) who are involved with a family in respect of child protection concerns. These situations can be very worrying and daunting for a parent or children who have to deal with social workers and other related professionals. The process can be baffling and bewildering. We can offer advice and representation in such a situation to include:-

  • Child protection issues concerning a child´s welfare and safeguarding such as Child Protection Case Conferences
  • Public law Court proceedings (care proceedings) issued by the Local Authority for Care or Supervision Orders in respect of a child.
  • Meetings before Action meetings convened by the Local Authority prior to issuing Court proceedings
  • CAFCASS (Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) involvement

We are very experienced in representing clients in cases involving Social Services and other government bodies.
