The headlines of the news today highlight the fact that there are an increasing number of children being taken into the care of the Local Authority and a large number of those are new born babies. They are often removed when the mother has had previous children taken into care. In these circumstances and indeed in all circumstances where the Local Authority is trying to remove a child the mother must never voluntarily sign her child over to Social Care but should always insist on the matter being put before the court.

Legal advice should always be sought to help the mother with this.  At Brearleys Solicitors we have an experienced team of care lawyers who can help people in these circumstances. Call us today on 01924 443900 or visit our website at
