Child Care, Adoption & Kinship Care
Ridley & Hall’s Child Care solicitors are experts in child care law, known both locally and nationally. We handle cases involving parental and children’s rights, as well as local authority responsibilities. We understand that many parents don’t get the support they should, despite their capabilities being questioned.
We are strong advocates for the rights of parents, children, grandparents, family members, and adoptive parents. Nowadays, grandparents, relatives, and friends are increasingly taking on vital roles in children’s lives, especially when a child is taken away from their parents by local authorities. It’s crucial to make sure these kinship carers’ voices are heard.
Our kinship care solicitors specialise in representing them in care proceedings, working to place the child with the right family or friends. We’ve helped families across the country, regardless of distance. Our main goal is to get the right results for carers, making sure both the child and the carers get the support they need.
Additionally, if you’re facing adoption challenges, our adoption lawyers are here to offer practical advice.
