The Scottish system for dealing with cases involving children is widely admired throughout the world. It is a unique system and centres on the needs of children.
Recent changes have been introduced by the Scottish Government bringing in new legislation. McCarrys have been approved and registered with the Scottish Legal Aid Board as a specialist firm in this area able to assist and provide representation for children and others caught up in legal proceedings before the Children’s Hearing or in the Sheriff Court.
We are available for calls to provide advice at short notice in circumstances which can be sensitive and anxious for those involved.
If you or your children have to appear at a Children’s Hearing then you must receive expert legal advice as early as possible. We can attend with you before the Children’s Panel and if required represent you should the case be referred to the Sheriff Court.
Contact us now for a free consultation to discuss how we can help. Legal Aid is often available for these cases.
