Children & social services

Strength on your side

Social services are there to protect vulnerable children, but often it doesn’t feel like that to the families involved.

Emotions are bound to be running high, especially if you are facing the prospect of your children being taken into care.

It makes sense to seek strong legal representation.

Children and social services

Paul Foster and Greg Moss are leading child care solicitors in the south west, with over 40 years of combined experience. As well as representing parents involved in care proceedings on a daily basis, in all levels of court, both are often instructed by the courts to represent children in these difficult cases.

Our specialist team works with care and professional sensitivity, always keeping children’s welfare at the forefront of the case while making sure that your voice is heard.

If you are a parent involved in these types of cases you’ll probably be automatically entitled to receive free legal representation. Other family members might be entitled to legal aid depending on their circumstances. Please go to legal aid to find out more. Find out more about court proceedings here. If you have been asked to go to a social services case conference, to go to a pre-proceedings (PLO) meeting, or have received court papers please contact us urgently.
