We have extensive experience representing parents, grandparents and other relatives in care proceedings.  We are able to advise and represent you if you are considering fostering a child.


You may be being asked to become a special guardian.  We can advise you as to the pros and cons of special guardianship as opposed to fostering.  Or you may simply be wanting contact with a child in care, or wish to challenge the conclusions Social Services have reached about you in a report.


We offer a fixed fee initial conference for £200 (inc VAT).  At this conference we will have considered any papers you provide to us in advance, and give you legal advice as to the next steps you should take and, if there is sufficient information available, what you could reasonably expect as an outcome.  We will then follow this up with a short written advice, and a list of the fees we would charge if you wish us to represent you at a hearing. These will be fixed costs, so there will be no unwelcome surprises.
