When the Local Authority deem there to be an urgent need, they will apply to court for an Emergency Protection Order, which permits the urgent removal of children from their parents. If this happens, you are entitled to Legal Aid and we can arrange representation at court hearings. The applications usually take place at very short notice.
We understand that this can be a very upsetting and stressful experience. Our team are on hand to guide you through the process and ensure you are represented.
