When your family is the subject of a Children’s Hearing Referral we at Baillie Spowart Ltd understand that it can be a confusing and distressing time for all involved. Despite the process being designed to be relatively informal and family friendly, it is absolutely essential to get the best possible legal advice as soon as possible. The decisions made by the Children’s Hearing Panel Members and by the court can have a profound, and sometimes permanent, effect on children and their families.
We will advise and guide you through the process step-by-step. You can ensure that your case will be dealt with in a professional, sensitive and discrete manner.
Being registered with the Scottish Legal Aid Board to provide representation at Children’s Hearings means that we are able to ensure that your voice is heard and understood by those making the decisions.
We will also provide you with sound advice and dedicated representation in relation to appealing against the decision of a Children’s Hearing should this be necessary.
