Expert Social Services Solicitors

If Social Services become concerned that your children are at risk of neglect or abuse, it is their duty to investigate the matter further. At this point you may become worried about the possible consequences. Being told that you are unfit to look after your children is highly distressing, and the prospect of having your children taken away is a terrible thing to face.

That is why we recommend that you contact us immediately. We can represent you to get the best possible outcome for you and your children.

As a parent, it can be difficult to know what to do when social services become involved. Not only are you dealing with an array of emotions, you may also feel like you are up against a system that you do not fully understand. This can leave you feeling vulnerable, especially if you are asked to attend meetings with Social Services and Court hearings.

For these reasons, it is best to contact our Social Services Solicitors as soon as possible. Our specialist solicitors can liaise with social services, prepare your case, and represent you at meetings and Court hearings. This will significantly increase your chances of securing a positive outcome for you and your children.

Expert Legal Advice

When Social Services become involved in your life, it is important to get expert legal advice without delay. Having the input of our solicitors from the start can prevent the situation from escalating, and provide legal and emotional support at a troubling time.
