When Social Services believe that a child is at a risk of significant harm, they have a duty to investigate and, in some cases, this could lead to them making an application to Court. We understand that dealing with Social Services in cases such as this is distressing and emotions can run high. It’s vital that you get legal advice from experienced child care solicitors as early as possible so that you know where you stand and you can make sure that the rights of both you and your family are protected.

Our specialist child care solicitors have the experience to support you every step of the way and can help guide you through all parts of the process including:

  • Adoption Orders
  • Care and Interim Care Orders
  • Challenging decisions made by Social Services
  • Child Protection Conferences
  • Contact to a Child in Care
  • Emergency Protection Orders
  • Placement Orders
  • Police Protection Orders
  • Public Law Outline (PLO) meetings
  • Secure Accommodation Orders
  • Supervision Orders
  • Special Guardianship Orders

Our Wolverhampton based child care lawyers advise and represent the parents, grandparents, other relatives and children where social services are investigating or where the case has been taken to Court.


In all cases legal aid is available for parents who are involved in Child Care proceedings without any financial contribution and we can provide a free legal aid assessment for other family members.
