A child’s safety is at the front of most parents' minds. Unfortunately sometimes legal steps, and possibly court action are necessary to protect children.
There are times when one parent finds they need to take action to protect their child from the other parent, from other family members or another person close to the child. In other cases the impact on a child of disputes between parents may result in professional concerns and local authority child protection procedures.
Child protection proceedings can be difficult and sometimes highly intimidating for parents.
If you are seeking to protect your child from a former partner or another party, then you may have to go through the courts to obtain protective court orders. This is never an easy or comfortable prospect.
If a dispute with a former partner has led to external child safety concern and local authority safeguarding, it can feel very frightening. When child protection proceedings are brought by outside agencies, there will normally be meetings involving the family and the professionals working with the child. Parents and guardians usually have the option to have professional legal representatives present. The goal of these meetings and conferences is to decide how the safety of the children can best be ensured. This can include where a child should live, the time they should spend with their parents and whether the local authority should initiate care proceedings through the courts.
