On your side when
Social Services get involved


Removing a child from the care of a parent is the most serious decision a British Court can make. Legal intervention in the life of your child by a local authority is one of the most distressing events your family can experience and one of the hardest to understand.

Miles & Partners’ childcare specialists are dedicated to representing parents, children and other family members, with sensitivity and diligence in matters including:

  • Care Orders and Emergency Protection Orders
  • Supervision Orders
  • Secure Accommodation Orders
  • Child Protection Investigations
  • Medical treatment of children
  • Grandparents or other relatives involved in care proceedings
  • Advice and representation in adoption proceedings
  • Contact with a child in Local Authority care

From Child Protection Conference to High Court hearing, we can act separately for children who are old enough to instruct a solicitor themselves. And we are used to dealing sensitively with family members who suffer mental health problems, psychological difficulties, drug or alcohol addiction.

Contact us right away if you are affected by any of these issues, for compassionate, specialist advice.
