This will place your child in care and make them the responsibility of social services. As parents, you have the right to complain if you are unhappy with the decision to place your child in care. You should contact our family & Child Care department immediately to discuss this matter with one of our specialist Children lawyers if this issue concerns you.
If your child has been placed in care, our child care solicitors will be able to advise you on what further steps can be taken in your case. Our childcare lawyers can advise you on your entitlement to legal Aid to help you challenge the courts decision to give social services/ the Local Authority the power to provide care for your child.
Our children solicitors are also appointed to act on behalf of the child taken in to care by the Local Authority.
