We can help you whether you are parents who need to determine where your child  lives or if you want to see your child more often. or if you are grandparents who want to see your grandchild.  Sometimes, where Children's Services are involved it can be challenging for grandparents to even speak with the Social Workers involved.

  • Specific Issue Order (for example changing a child's surname

  • Applications for DNA Testing

  • Applications to find out a child's whereabouts
