Dealing with Child Protection Matters

Our Family department has years of experience of dealing with child protection matters, acting for guardians and parents and assisting schools. We can:

  • Advise on social services investigations, including share of, and access to, information about children;
  • Advise on the legal effect and implications of both private (residence and contact) and public (care and interim care) orders;
  • Manage media interest in child protection cases, particularly where it impacts on the welfare of the child; and
  • Advise schools on the application of reporting restrictions in child protection cases.

For further information please contact us to see how we can help.
