I am a Childcare Paralegal and have worked within the Childcare sector for over 15 years. I represent parents, grandparents, and those with Local Authority involvement within pre-proceedings and Court proceedings. I provide clients with clear, honest, and practical advice.
I recently represented a mother through pre-proceedings in respect of her unborn baby. Her older children had previously been removed from her care. Despite my client complying with Local Authority during the pre-proceedings process, they remained concerned. Upon baby's birth, care proceedings were issued. The Local Authority sought removal hearing, the Judge allowed my client to enter a residential assessment with her baby. Following a 12-week assessment, my client had made significant progress and a plan was implemented to allow her to return home with her baby. With help and support, my client's care proceedings concluded under a 6-month Supervision Order with her child in her care at home.
