The Care system can be a difficult one to negotiate and often frustrating for parents and families. We aim make the process as clear and smooth as possible. At Percy Short & Cuthbert Nicolette Nixon deals with care cases and has over 10 years’ experience representing families in care proceedings. During this time she has dealt with the wide range of issues that can arise in care proceedings, including drug and alcohol addiction and allegations of abuse.
Because care proceedings present immense problems, both emotional and logistic, for parents we offer open ended appointments to clients to ensure that we can deal with matters thoroughly to achieve the best possible outcome. On occasions when unpalatable advice is necessary, we will give a realistic projection rather than one bound ultimately to disappoint.
For care cases we use specialist advocates and aim for consistency of representation where possible so that one advocate takes the case from start to finish.
