Child Care and Adoption

For a variety of reasons, some families experience Social Services’ involvement in their lives. This will always be a stressful and distressing time, and people need specialist legal advice to assist them through the process. These situations often involve Court proceedings, sometimes relating to the removal of children from their homes. Often there are related issues to do with substance misuse, ill health within the family, or the alleged abuse of children.

Very often, free legal advice and representation will be available to parents affected by these issues, regardless of their financial means.

We can also assist members of extended families who might need to become involved where there is a risk that children will enter the care system.


Sometimes difficulties within a family are such that children must be found a new home. We can assist those affected by these complicated issues, either seeking to adopt or resist the adoption of children.

Chambers UK, A Client’s Guide to the Legal Profession 2013 has once again awarded our team a top tier ranking for children law. The firm are noted as offering “very strong and experienced public children law practitioners,” with one of the largest public law teams in London.
