Re: SGO Never ending

Well we have just the final hearing to go after 10 court hearings. The best news is that Ridley & Hall are going to represent us at the final hearing. We have worked so hard in the last 3 years on this, but Judge advised us to get legal representation. We have done all the leg work, so hopefully the...

Re: SGO Never ending

Update to neverending story. Went to court today for the supposed final hearing and yet again it has been adjourned. Almost 3 years after my nephew was placed with us by LA after death of his mother (my sister) wherein it was ruled that he should have been LAC, LA have not completed correct assessme...

Re: SGO Never ending

CAFCASS have already been involved. I guess I should phone them and let them know what the LA are doing.
