Hi, thanks for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-How old is your son?
-What is the local authority's involvement?
-when is the next hearing?
Thanks for confirming. Adding a child as a party to proceedings does not mean that there will be care proceedings. There are various situations where a child may be added as party, for example, where a CAFCASS officer thinks it is appropriate, where the childs interests are inconsistent with you and the other party, and various other complex reasons. So do not be concerned if they are added. In any event care proceedings will need to be issued by the local authority and they need to meet the legal threshold that your son is suffering or is at risk of suffering significant harm.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
