Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is Peter, I'm a barrister and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
How long ago was this?
Of course - I'm asking how long ago the documents came into your possession and therefore how old the children are now?
My suggestion in this case, as the children are most likely under the care of the local authority, is to return the papers to Lincoln county council (assuming this is the local authority that instigated the proceedings).
They can then file them or destroy them if needs be.
I hope this assists.
Is there anything further that I can clarify?
Of course. Yes you can destroy other documents, I would suggest destroying photographs would be a little unfair, as they might not take much room to store and cannot be replaced. But all council paperwork should be returned there.
I hope this clarifies things for you.
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating (at the top right of your screen), I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
My pleasure and best wishes.
