Dorcas Funmi provides advice and assistance in all aspects of Children Law. We have an efficient Children Law team that represents the best interests of our clients at all times. We provide quality service in all areas of Children Law, including Public Law Child Care Proceedings and arrangements for children.

Our Child Care Law department approaches each case with a level of understanding only achievable through specialising in Child Care law. Whether involving social services, or a private law matter, it is important to be represented by those who understand how the law may affect you and your family.

We advise and represent parents and other family members in all Public Law and Private Law Proceedings.   These include proceedings where the Local Authority have applied for Emergency Protection Orders, Care Orders or where parents apply for contact with children in care and discharge of Care Orders.

We can also advise and assist where children are voluntarily accommodated and will attend Child Protection Conferences. We are there to support parents and provide them with advice and empower them during this difficult time.

Full public funding is usually granted to all parents involved in public law child care cases, regardless of financial means.

We also specialise in acting for parents and family members in other disputes such as where parents are separated and there are problems in facilitating contact or a dispute as to where the child should reside.

Dorcas Funmi and Co utilise the expertise acquired from Resolution membership and the Law Society Family Law Advanced and Family Panel Membership to the benefit of their clients.  The quality of the specialised work our staff undertake, and our ability to provide advocacy at all levels of Court ensure a consistent and professional service which makes proceedings less stressful for our clients.
