Preventing Care Proceedings Being Started

The last step before the local authority start care proceedings is usually a Public Law Outline meeting (PLO meeting). You will be invited to this meeting by letter from your social worker and it’s important that you attend.

You should instruct a solicitor to attend this meeting with you. You will not have to pay any legal fees as all parents are entitled to legal aid for a solicitor to support you through the PLO process.

Knowing both the importance of PLO meetings and how stressful they can be, we do our best to make you feel comfortable and supported throughout the entire process. Lockings’ child care lawyers have attended hundreds of PLO meetings that require expert guidance and support. .

In an ideal world, the PLO meeting will resolve any concerns the local authority has and the process will come to an end. That’s the ultimate aim of our PLO meeting lawyers.In some cases the concerns are not able to be resolved and escalate resulting in the local authority starting care proceedings.
