Foster Parents

Foster parents – you are the people who provide care and security for children who cannot be looked after within their own birth family. Often, this is short term as you help prepare them for moving back home or moving on. But, occasionally there is that one child or sibling group that you want to make a permanent part of your family.

We offer two bespoke sets of services for foster parents:

  • Creating a Modern Family with your Foster Children; and
  • Resolving Modern Family Foster Children Disputes

Each of these services are delivered by our specialist family lawyers with expertise and empathy.

Creating a Modern Family with your Foster Children

Creating a Modern Family with your Foster Children is about creating or adding to your modern family by:

  • Child Arrangements Order
  • Care Order
  • Special Guardianship Order
  • Adoption Order

Creating your Modern Family with your Foster Children is about agreement and collaboration between you, professionals and people you love and trust. It is also about what we can do to help you put your shared vision for your family into legal reality.


Resolving Modern Family Foster Children Disputes

Resolving Modern Family Foster Children Disputes is about what to do when things don’t go as planned, for example birth parents oppose their foster child living with you or they want to carry on seeing their child more frequently than you are happy with. We strongly believe that it is always better to keep talking and keep trying to resolve things rather than start a battle, if it can be avoided. However, rest assured that we will robustly pursue your case if negotiation doesn’t work.

Resolving Modern Family Disputes includes:

  • Abduction & International Family Proceedings
  • Adoption
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Care Proceedings
  • Change of Name
  • Child Arrangements Order
  • Parental Responsibility
  • Prohibited Steps Order
  • Relocation
  • Special Guardianship Order
  • Specific Issue Order
  • Wardship & Inherent Jurisdiction

Our specialist family lawyers will advise, represent and support you through any contested family proceedings. Our service will be bespoke. Our aim will be to secure the outcome you seek without destroying family relationships along the way.
