At Forbes all of our Family Solicitors are specialists in cases involving children and Social Services. Several of our Solicitors are also accredited as Law Society Children Panel specialists, meaning that they can also represent children.
Sometimes Social Services can become involved where children are neglected or abused. Social Services may wish to carry out an Initial Assessment or there may be a Child Protection Conference, or in the more serious cases, Court Proceedings. In all of these cases it is crucial to get expert legal advice as soon as possible.
Legal Aid is available in many cases.
Often taking early legal advice can help to avoid Social Services taking further action or possibly applying to the Court to remove children.
