If Children’s Services believe that a child is at risk of significant harm, they can take various actions to protect the child. They could also make an application to court (known as, Care Proceedings).
If Social Services have contacted you and you need advice, please contact us immediately.
At Ashmans Solicitors we are experts in the field of Child Protection Law. We have represented children, their parents, and family members in serious cases involving the Local Authority for many years, and are very familiar with cases where social workers are involved.
Our Family Law Team has a steadfast approach and we treat the welfare of your children as the most important aspect of each case. We work to ensure that help and support is always provided to families, so that their children can be cared for by a parent or family member, wherever possible.
Below are listed the main areas of Child Protection that Ashmans Solicitors can advise you on:

Ashmans Solicitors Family Law Team will always strive to secure the best possible outcome for you and your family.
