We are experts in this field, with two childcare panel solicitors. We will obtain Legal Aid if proceedings have been issued. Prior to proceedings we will advise and assist. We will attend all court hearings and try to avoid using outside advocates, dealing with barristers and solicitors in-house.
Private Law Children's Act
We will advise and try to agree contact between partners, but where this is not possible and mediation fails, we will tailor our service to fit your needs. We will offer a fixed fee to cover issuing proceedings and attending the first court hearing, thereafter the fees will differ depending on the complexity and length of the case.
Emergency Children's Act Applications
We are experts in this field and on a daily basis make applications to protect children whether from physical or other abuse. We will always deal with these applications with speed and prioritise the work. These matters often will be undertaken with the benefit of Legal Aid if you are eligible. Our staff will usually be able to tell you whether you are eligible that day as long as you provide us with the documentation we request. We also work closely with the NCDV.
