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.

But 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 put you on the backfoot, especially if you are asked to attend meetings and Court hearings.

For these reasons, it is best if you ask our Family Law Solicitors to act on your behalf 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.
