This is a specialist area of Law. We have 2 Solicitors who specialise in this area and can advise you through the process. One of our Solicitors is a member of the Law Society Children Panel.
You may be considering a step-parent adoption or a family adoption.
You may be a foster carer who wants advice about adopting a foster child.
You may have been notified by Social Services that your children has been placed for adoption and a hearing is going to take place to consider a final adoption order.
We are able to give you specific advice based on your circumstances, and assess whether you are eligible for Legal aid, or whether there are alternative sources of funding any court proceedings.
Please contact our Care team either by telephone on the number provided below or by completing our contact form.
Legal aid for urgent court proceedings involving social services (care proceedings) is still accessible and we are still able to put this in place, as is other legal aid. Please contact us if you receive an urgent letter about court proceedings or pre-proceedings from social services.
