Local Authority involvement with your child and in your family can be a stressful and confusing time and at JNP Legal we have a number of specialist Solicitors who will advise and support you during this difficult time. We will provide you with honest and clear advice about the nature and effect of a social worker investigating your child's circumstances.

  • Child protection referrals
  • Child protection conferences

How we can help with Care Proceedings

At this difficult time you need to have someone fighting your corner and ensure that you understand and address any concerns of a local authority to try and avoid court proceedings being issued by the local authority and to avoid the prospect of your child being removed from your care and at JNP Legal our Solicitors will advise and represent you at every step of the way.

Our Solicitors also regularly advise and represent concerned relatives such as grandparents, aunts and uncles about their legal position and what applications they can make should they wish to care for a relative’s child and avoid the prospect of that child being placed in to foster care.

In the majority of cases legal aid is available to assist and represent you and we will assess your eligibility for legal aid immediately at your first appointment.

It is better to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity so please do not delay in getting in touch if you need advice and representation.
