Our team understand that any issues concerning your children and family can be emotionally challenging and stressful. Our family solicitors are here to make things as easy for you as we can. We will work hard to get to know you and understand your unique situation so that we can help you to resolve matters quickly and start planning for a happier future.
We will assign you a dedicated family solicitor to work with you and manage your case towards a solution that works for you and your family. We will provide you with a personal service from the initial meeting to the final outcome. Our family solicitors will always understand that the welfare of your child is your priority and will work with you in a sympathetic and understanding way to help you reach arrangements to suit your family and your child.
Our family solicitors understand that any legal proceedings can be daunting and confusing. At Lockings Solicitors we use plain English, not legal jargon. We will explain everything in a way that is clear and easy to understand.
Sometimes Social Services may become involved with your family. They may invite you to a meeting to discuss the worries they have for your child, or they may make an application to court for court orders regarding your child. Again, our team of family solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with these difficult cases. Several of our team are members of the Law Society Children’s Panel, meaning that they have the qualifications and experience to represent children and parents in the most complex of cases. Legal aid is always available for children and parents involved in these types of proceedings.
You may be a family member or a foster carer who is being asked to care for a child on a long-term basis. You may be a family member who wishes to challenge the decisions being made by Social Services about a child. Whatever your circumstances our family solicitors are available to discuss the different options with you and whether legal aid may be available. Information about some of the different types of cases we can help with are detailed on our website.
We offer a free initial chat where we will explain the costs and timescales involved upfront so you always know what to expect. We will also discuss the availability of legal aid which may be available in your unique situation. If Social Services have invited you to a legal meeting or made an application to court, legal aid will always be available for parents.
