The Children’s Hearing system is intended to provide assistance to children and families in Scotland who require support. It is designed to be fairly informal. However, it does have significant legal consequences and we would therefore advise that you seek legal advice as early in the process as you are able to.
We are regularly instructed by parents, children and relevant persons to represent their interests in relation to all matters arising from the referral process. We can advise you in regards to the Grounds for Referral, Compulsory Supervision Orders, Child Protection Orders, Appealing Hearing Decisions and all associated Court Hearings.
I sought support initially from Cairns Brown on recommendation to gain a financial separation and settlement of assets. They offered objective and excellent legal advice informing me fully on what options were available. They supported and advised me, allowing me to progress a very acrimonious situation with integrity and fairness. Circumstance led to further representation in a family court but their expertise meant the best interests of my child were prioritised which was the most important thing. CC April 2017
From initial enquiry to my divorce and financial negotiations being concluded, Cairns Brown were efficient, helpful and reasonable. The advice I was given was excellent, and all the complicated procedures and paperwork were explained to me. In fact, it couldn’t have been easier. They were the third legal firm I spoke to, and were the best by far. VL April 2017
Cairns Brown has advised and represented myself, family and business over the past years (18 years) on many various matters successfully, with the latest issue being with a major utility company and being successful with costs, £6,000 00 being repaid to myself. I would not hesitate to recommend these Solicitors for personal advice or any possible litigations minor or major they may have. DM April 2017
