Child Care Law is where Social Services have concerns for a child’s welfare or protection and consider that a child is at risk of significant harm. This is a very specialised area of family law. Child Law Partnership lawyers are members of the Law Society Children Panel. This is an essential requirement for lawyers dealing with these complex and important cases.

We cover a broad range of proceedings and represent children, parents, guardians and family members, working with sensitivity and empathy during this difficult time. We can advise you in relation to child protection case conferences; pre-proceedings meetings (PLOs) and social services court proceedings. If you have been notified about attendance at one of these, do not hesitate to get in touch straight away. Child Law Partnership always has the child’s best interests at heart – and we ensure you are given the best opportunities to have your opinion heard. We offer advice and information to ensure a full understanding of your rights and how the law may affect you and your family.

Our family lawyers work hard to ensure the child’s welfare is at the forefront of everything we do.

Child Law Partnership represent children in care and involved in other public law proceedings in local care centres such as Guildford, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Southampton, Reading, Croydon and Brighton as well as in London Family Courts. Speak to our lawyers about funding for child care cases such as these – it may be that you will qualify for free legal aid for representation.
