Hi, thank you for your question. As social services are involved, and if you are in receipt of benefits or a low income, then you would be entitled to legal aid for a solicitor to advise and assist you in this process. The social worker should have a list of solicitors who provide such services and they should provide this to you upon request.
Have they indicated if they are seeking to take the matter to court?
