Pre-Proceeding Meeting

daiga-ellaby-154938

A pre-proceedings meeting is a meeting with you and the Local Authority when they believe that they are almost at the point of having to commence formal court proceedings in respect of your child or children.

Often with the support and advice of an experienced Child Care Lawyer, court proceedings can be avoided and agreements can be reached as to a way forward. You will be asked in the pre-proceedings meeting to sign a written agreement which should set out clearly the steps that you need to take, which if you fail to carry out the Local Authority will commence court proceedings. You should not sign this document unless you have had legal advice as to the implications for you if you do not comply.
