Children Law And Care Proceedings


At Platt Halpern, we understand the emotional impact any legal dispute regarding children can have on parents and the wider family. You might be separating from your spouse or partner, or the Local Authority may have begun care proceedings. Either way, advice from lawyers who will listen to you and represent you at short notice if necessary is essential. At Platt Halpern, this is what you can expect.

We are experienced children lawyers, and many of us are on the Law Society’s Children Panel. This reflects our high level of knowledge, skill and practical experience in this area.

We represent legally aided clients as well as people who pay privately. Many of our clients are on low incomes, and we are committed to making our services as affordable as possible.
