Legal proceedings involving children is inevitably an emotional and stressful time for parents. For solicitors, social workers and guardians it can also be difficult to explain the legal process to parents and children.
David Hawkins, in conjunction with local solicitor Sarah Jane Lynch have produced 2 simple guides which comprises easy words and pictures to help explain family breakdown and court proceedings.
These booklets trace the journeys taken by families when parents seperate - "The Court and Your Child: when mum and dad split up",and when social workers get involved - "The Court and Your Child - When Social Workers Get Involved."
