“Thank you for all of your help with the sale of our house. You were all very positive throughout the process which really helped me. We will now start looking for a property to buy so I hope if we find something you will be able to act for us again. Once again, many thanks. ”

Bridge McFarland has a dedicated team of experts who deal solely with children's cases.

Because of their membership of the Children Panel, our childcare solicitors are entitled to represent not only parents, but also children themselves. Children can instruct us through their Children's Guardian appointed by the courts, or directly if they are of sufficient age and understanding to do so. Our instructions come not only from parents and children but also from Children's Guardians employed by CAFCASS (the ‘Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service’).

Bridge McFarland’s childcare solicitors are primarily involved in public law cases. These are cases in which the local authority social services department are seeking to intervene in the life of a family often by placing children in care. The team has become increasingly involved in private law cases in which there are difficulties between parents, over issues of contact and residence, and the court orders that the child should be independently represented by him or herself.

Full legal aid is usually granted to all parents and children involved in public law cases, regardless of financial means. Legal aid can be applied for in most private law cases as well, but is subject to means and merit testing.

This area of work is incredibly stressful and potentially heartbreaking for many of our clients. Accordingly we strive to offer not only the best possible legal advice, but also the support and help often needed by our clients to get through a very difficult time in their lives.

If you think that we can help you or someone close to you we will be happy to arrange a preliminary interview of up to half an hour without charge or obligation, just get in touch.
