We have specialist knowledge in advising parents, children, family members and children’s guardians in care proceedings which take place when child protection issues have been raised.

ITN’s children lawyers have expert knowledge in this complex and sensitive area of law, with  members of our department accredited on the Law Society’s Children Panel. We have experience in advising on issues including but not limited to cases where there have been allegations of neglect, abuse, risk of harm, non-accidental injuries and radicalisation. We will advise on any practical and urgent steps that need to be taken within the proceedings and aim to help you understand the process and make informed decisions. In particular, we advise and assist on the following: 

  • s.20 accommodation

  • Care Orders
  • Supervision Order
  • Adoption
  • Discharge of Care Orders
