Care proceedings

Franklins Law covers the full range of care cases. This includes meetings with the Local Authority before proceedings are issued, emergency protection orders, supervision orders, child assessment orders, secure accommodation orders, as well as interim and full care orders. We can represent you from the moment problems arise and a Local Authority become involved through to a final hearing whereby decisions are being made regarding a child. We have experience in a wide range of cases involving non-accidental injury, physical and sexual abuse, alcohol and drug related issues and emotional abuse and neglect.

We can also assist with adoptions, Special Guardianship Orders and child assessment orders.

Legal Aid is automatically free to parents or individuals with parental responsibility. There is no need to provide any financial information. This covers advice and assistance before proceedings and when proceedings are issued.
