Changing Solicitor mid case

Nothing to do with Family and Friends care, but the underlying question could easily come up in one of our cases. It's also rare for me to ask for advice, but to this I don't know the answer. I am supporting a mother who has had her children removed. Complex background that I don't want to go into, ...

Re: Need urgent advice

And to you DB182. Quite a year for you, but hopefully a Christmas with your grandson you could only dream of earlier in the year.

Re: Address change

I am fairly confident that there is no requirement as, assuming there are no other orders in place, you have full PR. You should tell others with PR unless there is a safety issue.
