Public Law Children Act - Care Proceedings

Public Law Children Act - Care Proceedings

This is when a Local Authority, via its Social Services Department, makes an application to the Court to obtain legal powers to intervene in families, and to make decisions about the way in which children are cared for by their parents or other family members.

If the local authority has issued care proceedings in relation to your children you are entitled to free legal advice. You may also be entitled to be represented under the legal help or legal aid scheme in respect of other matters relating to your children.
