At Banner Jones our work with children includes care proceedings brought by the Social Services.

Social Services may tell you that they are going to start care proceedings, but if they do not, you will find out when you receive a notice from the court telling you when your first care proceeding meeting is and where it will be held.

Our experts in Chesterfield, Sheffield, Mansfield and Nottingham can help you with any aspect of care proceedings so please get in touch if you need advice.  Our team have worked with parents going through care proceedings for many years and they will be able to guide you through it step by step.
