Children and Social Services

When social services are involved with your family, it can be worrying and upsetting. We provide expert legal advice in this complicated area of family law.

If you are a parent or a young person whose family is involved with social services (sometimes called “children’s services”), we can advise and represent you even before a case goes to court (the “pre-proceedings” stage). We can also help if you want to support a relative whose children are involved with social services.

We are specially trained to deal with these complex children cases, and are members of the Law Society's Children Panel as well as the Association of Lawyers for Children.

We are experienced advocates in social services cases. When you instruct us, you will usually have a children’s lawyer from TV Edwards representing you in court. That lawyer will either be the person who deals with your case day-to-day, or will be one of our specialist advocates, working closely with them. We may bring in approved external specialist family advocates (barristers and solicitor advocates) who also offer the highest standards of representation in court.

Our advice is clear and independent, and based on many years’ experience of children, families and the law. If you are dealing with a difficult issue to do with divorce, children, or any other family situation and need specialist family solicitors in London to advise you, we are here to help.
