Children Act Proceedings

Walter Jennings & Son does not do legal aid or publically funded work itself.  However, the head office of Frank Brazell & Partners Limited in Islington can advise and assist you under legal aid / publically funded schemes.  Do contact us in the first instance and we can advise you how to deal with that.  It is possible to see you in either the Kentish Town or Islington offices, whichever is most convenient for you.

The firm offers high quality legal advice with four members of the children panel undertaking all forms of Children Act proceedings. We offer confidential and independent advice, and if the local authority or police become involved we can act for you or your children. We try to ensure that all advocacy is kept in house and the lawyer you see in the office will be the same person as the advocate at court and all professionals meetings, thereby ensuring a consistent approach throughout the case. On the rare occasion that the solicitor dealing with your case cannot conduct a hearing there will be a close liaison between you, your lawyer and the advocate for the hearing.

We cover:

  • Care proceedings        
  • Residence / Parental Responsibilty
  • Contact
  • Adoption
  • Special Guardianship
  • Child abduction

Our team has an exceptional range of experience within this highly specialised field of law.
