If there has been any Local Authority involvement with a family we can provide advice on the appropriate procedures and correspond with the Local Authority on the clients behalf, if required. If an application is issued by a Local Authority for a care order we can provide representation in those proceedings.
We can also advise you on whether you are entitled to Legal Aid funding if you have received notification of pre-proceedings by the Local Authority (i.e. letter).
