Care Proceedings

Having involvement with Social Services or having care proceedings issued against you is a frightening experience for any parent. Many parents feel at a disadvantage as they do not understand the procedure. Therefore, it is important to get good legal advice to put forward your case in the best manner possible.


We understand this at Patrick Lawrence Partnership and aim to offer the best advice and information possible to help you through this difficult time.


This is not a matter to delay on. If you have had contact from Social Services concerning the possibility of your children being taken into care, contact us today! Many cases concerning care proceedings are eligible for Legal Aid, therefore you may not need to pay for your appointment with us.


We can generally offer emergency appointments for care cases.


Please contact us as soon as possible to book an appointment to see us at our Gravesend office.


When booking the appointment, please let us know if you would like to see us in our wheelchair accessible meeting room.
