Re: Family Law Group

You need to find a solicitor on the Children Panel within family law. Best look on the web or a children panel solicitor near 'your town' then ring them. Find out if they will act for the child as that would be free but there maybe issues about whether your daughter is able to instruct.

Re: Parenting assessment

Hi KT53. I am astonished that a SW told you that. The whole purpose of the assessment is to see if a placement would be safe and in the best interests of the child. Anything pertinent will go in, as it forms part of the overall picture. If history was not included, someone who had previously let a c...

Re: SGOs and CAOs

WARNING TO ALL. Please do not click on any of the links posted by Mahi01. This is a scam and has nothing to do with Mcafee and is designed to download viruses to your machine. I have reported them through the forum, but do not know if the moderators monitor it over the weekend. Take care everyone. R...

Re: Kinship advice

Local authorities will take any opportunity to save money. That said, there have been several cases where they have been overruled by the courts. Start by reading advice sheets 21a, 22 and possibly parts of 19 at https://www.frg.org.uk/need-help-or-advice/our-advice-service/advice-sheets. Good luck ...

Re: Need urgent advice

I suggest writing to the LA as you propose but copy in the guardian or solicitor for the child. If you have another hearing coming up, you can get it corrected there. Usually before a final hearing you would be putting in a written statement. That's also a good place to note any inaccuracies in evid...

Re: Need urgent advice

If you don't go, a SW would have to. They would be paid as well as claiming expenses.

Re: Need urgent advice

They would have to paid costs for the foster parents, so can't see why they shouldn't. I would ask and see what the response is. Not sure of the legal position, @suzie may be able to assist on that point.

Re: BM applying to court to revoke SGO but she is in a DV relationship

Good idea. 👍

Make sure you keep a copy in case your email program or server deletes out going mail after a period. Either print it to hard copy or to pdf. If you don't have a print to PDF option, download Foxit reader for free then you select it as though it was any other printer.

Re: BM applying to court to revoke SGO but she is in a DV relationship

Only the court can revoke a SGO and they will want evidence of a sustained lifestyle change by BM, AND will apply the welfare principle. There would be a full reassessment during which you would be asked for your views. Don't forget that before the court will even entertain looking at the issue, she...
