Keep your family together this Christmas

Christmas is the time of year when families should be together. For some families however they face the agonising prospect of social services taking them to Court to try to remove their children. If this is your family you need to ensure you take specialist advice as soon as possible. At Burd Ward both John Burd and Laura Prysor-Jones are specially accredited members of the Law Society’s Children Panel meaning they specialise in all aspects of proceedings involving children. It is important that you seek advice as soon as Social Services become involved with your family as situations can change very quickly. We have the experience to advise and guide you at every stage of the process.

If your children have been removed or you have been given paperwork to say that you are being taken to Court you must instruct a solicitor immediately. The Court must try to conclude proceedings within 26 weeks which means you need advice from the start to give you the best chance of having a successful outcome. These situations can seem overwhelming and it is tempting to bury your head in the sand however you must be proactive and get as much help as you can. That starts with a call to Burd Ward.

We have an out of hours number which means that you can contact us any time if you have had your children removed or are facing Court proceedings over the Christmas period. Please call 0151 639 8273 during office hours or by email or outside of office hours.
