Our experienced team of family solicitors advise and represent parents when Social Services become involved and ask you to attend a PLO meeting (a pre-proceedings meeting) or tell you that they intend to start Court proceedings. If this happens, it is important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
A PLO meeting is where Social Services ask you to attend a meeting with a solicitor to discuss the concerns they have in relation to your children.
Care proceedings take place when Social Services apply to the Court in relation to your children.
Legal Aid is available to parents who have been asked to attend a PLO meeting or have been told there will be Court proceedings in relation to their children. This means that you will not have to pay any legal fees.
If you would like to know more about this process or feel this could be something you would benefit from, please contact us at [email protected] or telephone Ipswich 01473 213311 or Colchester 01206 584584, where we will be happy to speak with you.
