Child Care / Social Services Cases

Child Care and Social Services Cases - Legal Advice and Support

Sometimes a local authority (commonly referred to as ‘social services’) can become involved with a family where there is concern a child is potentially vulnerable to abuse or neglect.

Here at Farleys our Family Law team realise these situations are often highly emotive and can be a source of great stress and worry for those parties involved. Our team of solicitors have extensive experience in all aspects of care proceedings and frequently represent children, parents, and other wider family members at court. We provide advice and support throughout the whole process including initial meetings with the local authority (case conference) to representation at court in relation to any application for the removal of your child in to care.

Our award winning team have a wealth of expertise supporting our clients through what is always a distressing time. We offer legal advice tailor made to your needs and will work tirelessly to ensure we can secure the best possible outcome for you and your child.

Seeking early legal advice can help minimise the anxiety caused, as our specialist solicitors will be able to advise you from your initial inquiry on the best course of action available to you.

In many cases where social services become involved, legal aid is often available. For further information on eligibility regarding legal aid please see Legal Aid for Family Law Cases.
