Child Care Proceedings


Our child care proceedings solicitors are extremely experienced and represent one of the leading departments in the Medway Towns.

Our expert child care solicitors advise and represent parents and family members in all public law child care proceedings.  If the local authority has applied for an Emergency Protection Order or Care Order please contact us immediately so that we can help.

The team is approachable and friendly.  We understand that care proceedings can be uncertain and stressful.  We aim to reduce the uncertainty and stress by keeping you informed and advising in simple terms what you can expect and how best to deal with your case.

The firm is one of the largest practices in the Medway Towns and North Kent, servicing clients across Kent, the South East and London.

We can help you with:

  • Local Authority pre-proceedings meetings
  • Emergency Protection Orders
  • Interim and full Care Orders
  • Interim and full Supervision Orders
  • Special Guardianship Orders (subject to Legal Aid Agency means testing)

Full public funding (legal aid) is usually available to all parents involved in public law care proceedings, regardless of your financial circumstances.
