Care Proceedings

If you have children and become involved with Social Services because something has gone wrong with their care, our Family Department can assist. They are all experienced in dealing with the issues that arise at the time you need to go to Court or in negotiations before this.

The process may be very worrying or even frightening, we are able to provide sympathetic and experienced advice to help you through this difficult time. Advice is sometimes needed very quickly, we aim to provide this at the earliest opportunity.

Legal Aid is available for Court proceedings if you are a parent of the child concerned. This will ease the worry of how advice is to be paid for. Legal Aid is also available for parents who need to attend pre-proceeding's meetings.

You need only telephone our Weston-super-Mare office on 01934 414 161 and we will endeavour to offer advice immediately, or arrange an appointment as soon as possible.

  • Our charges

    Berry Redmond Gordon & Penney charge at an hourly rate, which is influenced by the following:

    • The particular expertise and experience of the person dealing with the case
    • The complexity of the transaction
    • Whether the matter requires unusually urgent and swift action
    • The time spent on the matter

    We always give an estimate of the likely costs at the beginning of the matter, with regular updates as the matter progresses, so that you can always be certain of the costs involved in your particular case at any given time.
