Care Proceedings

To prevent the need for legal proceedings, getting expert legal advice as early as possible is essential. For those who have had their children taken into care, or Social Services have indicated that they may commence Court action to take children into care (Care Order or Emergency Protection Order), or apply for a Supervision Order, FREE legal representation is available and you should get in touch with us as soon as social services become involved with your family.

Legal Aid may be available with this service.

Legal aid is government assistance to meet legal costs for persons who are unable to afford legal representation.*

Child Care Proceedings

Our team are highly experienced in assisting clients in all dealings with Social Services. As Local Authorities have a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of a child, they are obliged to intervene and seek removal of children from their parents if they deem it necessary.

This can often leave parents feelings frustrated, let down and helpless. We understand that it can leave parents feeling stranded, which is where we come in; our experts in the field are ready to assist you and make sure that you are properly represented. Social services commonly make the following court applications:

This can often leave parents feelings frustrated, let down and helpless. We understand that it can leave parents feeling stranded, which is where we come in; our experts in the field are ready to assist you and make sure that you are properly represented. Social services commonly make the following court applications:

Emergency Protection Order

Only when a child is deemed to be at a risk of immediate harm, an Emergency Protection Order is applied for. This order allows Local Authority to have parental responsibility for up to a period of 8 days. To apply for this order, representation at a hearing is vital.

Care Order

The Local Authority is given parental responsibility for a child with this order.

This means that while parents are still responsible for the child, Local Authorities have the power to override the parents and be in charge of any important decision making that is in the child’s best interest. This can include where the child will live and go to school.

Care Orders can be granted on an interim basis by the court and are usually applied for if Social Services want children to be removed from the care of parents pending assessments. To apply for this order, representation at a hearing is vital.

Supervision Order

With this order, the Local Authority is obliged to provide advice and assistance to the main carer of the child. Local Authority is not given any parental responsibility with this order. Although it is usually for 12 months, a specific length of time for this order will be stated.

Placement Order

For the Local Authority to have the power to place a child for adoption without the consent of the parents, a Placement Order is needed. If the Local Authority intend to place a child for adoption, this order is usually applied in conjunction with a Care Order.

Special Guardianship Order

This order is needed if somebody other than the parents are to take responsibility for a child until they reach the age of 18. With this order, a Special Guardian shares the parental responsibility with the parent but has the power to have the final say on all decision making for the child. Grandparents and other immediate family members usually apply for this order when children are not provided with sufficient care from their parents. The rules regarding this order are quite complex, so getting expert legal advice is an absolute must.

Advice and assistance is available to all family members should they wish to be responsible for the care of the child as an alternative to being placed in foster care.

I worked with Haris Ali Solicitors while transitioning from a student visa to a more permanent visa that would enable me to work full time. Through their professional and accurate guidance I was able to successfully secure my visa. I am particularly grateful to Mr. Walid, Mr. Amar and Mrs. Yasmeen for their caring and loving guidance through out the visa application journey. They spared no effort to make sure my application had all the documents necessary and that everything was fulfilled on time. I definitely recommend Haris Ali Solicitors to anyone who needs help with Immigration.
