We are specialist lawyers with considerable experience in matters relating to children. Our Children Law team are highly qualified practitioners with years of experience in dealing with children matters.
We have vast experience of representing parents, other family members, and children either directly or through a children's guardian in all Public Law proceedings. These include applications for Care and Supervision proceedings or applications for contact with children in care.
We provide services in children law matters under free public funding (Legal Aid) and this is normally available to all parents and children involved in care proceedings. We can also provide legal aid for other family members to help with their legal costs.
Our team can also provide assistance in private law children cases involving issues such as residence and contact, applications to remove children from the jurisdiction and adoption.
We understand that Children cases can be distressing to parents so our specialist lawyers endeavour to assist and explain issues in a way that can make the parents feel at ease. Our lawyers understand the issues involved and they know how the courts operate and prepare the case accordingly.
