It can be a traumatic time for parents and children when a family is separated and children are placed into care. If this has happened to you then speak to us. We can advise you on the legal proceedings you may face and help bring your family back together.

Care proceedings are instigated by the Local Authority’s Social Services department when they believe that your child is suffering, or is likely to suffer, serious harm.

At Passmores, we appreciate the devastating impact that these proceedings can have upon children, parents, carers and other family members who are involved in the welfare of your children. We always endeavor to deal with cases in a sensitive and caring manner.

Passmores are accredited members of the Law Society’s Children Panel. This means that when we act on behalf of children and adults, we offer the highest possible legal service.

Passmores has a team of specialists working at our Barry office in the Vale of Glamorgan and at our Cardiff office in South Glamorgan. They will be pleased to discuss your requirements with you without any commitment.

We are able to explain why Social Services have become involved with your child’s care and what happens if and when care proceedings are commenced. We can advise you in relation to the first hearing, orders that the Court can make, interim hearings and what will happen at the final hearing.

For parents, or family members with parental responsibility for a child, Public Funding (Legal Aid) is available on a non-means, non-merit basis. We are able to apply for Legal Services Public Funding on your behalf.

Passmores offers a friendly, committed and efficient service when dealing with child care proceedings. If you are in the Barry, Cardiff or the Vale of Glamorgan area and need legal advice on care proceedings then contact one of our specialists today.
