Child Care Law

We are one of the largest child care teams in London and our specialist lawyers are leaders in their field. We advise in all cases where social services are involved with children.

How can we help?

Our child care solicitors advise and represent parents and other family members and can provide advice even before court proceedings start.

We have specialist accredited Law Society Children Panel lawyers who also represent children and Children’s Guardians in both proceedings brought by social services and in private disputes between parents where the court has directed that the children should be separately represented.

We recognise how stressful it can be for all parents and family members involved in proceedings regarding their children. Our specialist child care solicitors provide high quality advice, support, and representation in the most difficult and complex cases.

Legal aid is automatically available to all parents where social services apply for care and supervision orders and within the  pre-proceedings PLO  process.  Legal aid may  be available in other circumstances too and your solicitor will be able to confirm whether this applies to you. We offer competitive rates for those not eligible for legal aid.

Child Care

Despite your busy work schedule, you always made our case at the top of your priority list, you kept us calm and soothed our fears. Without your wonderful advice and your firm’s legal experience, we would not have the outcome we had. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone who needs a brilliant solicitor.

Child Care

I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Family & Divorce

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU for your support, you were an angel. I really appreciate that and owe you a debt of gratitude.

Family & Divorce

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

Child Abduction

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
