The law regarding children is complex and specialised. Jefferies have two experienced, specialist solicitors who are members of the Law Society Children Panel and a further three lawyers who specialise in all aspects relating to the care and welfare of children.
We represent parents, other family members and/or children in disputes arising over:
- Contact and residence issues
- Cases brought by the local Authority/Social Services which may result in the removal of children from their parents care
- Adoption and fostering
A conciliatory approach is almost always best when dealing with disputes about children since parental relationship breakdown should not interfere with individual parents relationships with their children.
We believe that the best outcomes for children are achieved through listening, understanding, conciliation and negotiation. However, on occasions, where this approach fails, and then we are able to provide strong and effective representation in Court which will often include advocacy.
We are pleased to be recommended by the Grandparents association.
