Social Services Intervention

We recognise it will be extremely difficult or upsetting if you are contacted by Social Services expressing concerns about your family life. We have an experienced team who are able to assist you in dealing with an approach from your local authority.

We are able to assist you with all aspects of social services intervention, at whatever stage, often with the financial support of your fees being paid by Legal Aid.

These include:

  • Child Protection Conferences and placing a child on the ‘at risk’ register
  • Emergency protection orders,
  • Applications for a supervision order
  • Applications to place your child, or a child in your extended family, in foster care or for adoption.

There are also other, limited, circumstances where we can assist you with family matters under the Legal Aid Scheme. Please contact us for more information.

Call us on 0808 168 8677 (local rate) to find out more about our Social Services Intervention law services or alternatively go to "Meet the Team" to contact one of our specialists directly.

With solicitors offices in Battersea, Hanover Square London, Harlesden, Harrow and Wembley, Hodders Law can provide the services of a local solicitor backed up by the strength of a big firm expertise.

Our Testimonials

“Dear Karen,

Thank you very much indeed for all that you, William Brown, and your support team at Hodders have done in connection with this purchase, and with the associated sale of Wallers Haven Barn. There were many times when I thought that we were not going to make one or the other, and it is in very large part down to your persistence that we are exchanged. Your care, patience and attention to detail have been much appreciated.
