Children’s Care Proceedings

If the Local Authority has sent you a Letter Before Proceedings or has invited you to attend a Pre-Proceedings Meeting because it is worried about the care provided to a child, we can assist you.

It is important that you do not ignore the Letter Before Proceedings as this is a final notice to parents and the Local Authority may issue court proceedings and take your child into care.

Taking legal advice quickly and acting on it may avoid the issue of proceedings.
