Child taken into care
We offer expert legal advice, when social services become involved with you and your family. We understand that this is a stressful time for everyone involved and our expert solicitors are on hand to help you through this difficult time.
How can we help?
The Public Law Outline (PLO) process
This is the last step before the Local Authority considers issuing proceedings. If you have received a letter from the Local Authority inviting you to a PLO meeting, contact us and we will attend this meeting with you.
If you are informed by the Local Authority that your child is being removed from your care, you should contact us straight away. Our team of experts have extensive knowledge and will be with you every step of the way. If you receive notice from the Local Authority that care proceedings are being issued, we will see you quickly to ensure that you are represented at the first hearing.
Other Orders that can be made
Special Guardianship orders
Discharging a care order
Adoption orders or placement applications.
We can advise you on other orders that can be made and can advise family members if they are being assessed as Special Guardians.
We are experts in this field and our senior partner, Fariha Akhtar, has a keen interest in this area of work. We will always advise as to what is right for you and adopt a personal approach to your situation.
If you are involved in care proceedings, please contact us email email@example.com or telephone 01274 502814 to book a time to meet with us.
