Lichfield Reynolds Solicitors have a highly skilled and specialised Child Care Department. Our Children Law Solicitors have vast experience in dealing with Child Care Law matters. We represent parents, grandparents, other family members and children directly or through their court appointed Children’s Guardian.

What are Care Proceedings?

If your child has been taken into care or social services are threatening to take them into care then you should seek legal advice immediately.

There is a Public Law Outline and/or Care Proceedings which are when social services ask the court to look at your child’s situation and decide if your child needs a legal order to keep them safe from harm.

It is essential that you contact a Child Care specialist Solicitor at this stage.
