Customer Question

Hi, I have had access to my children taken away following an arrest but no charge yet
JA: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Lymington, UK
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Nothing really, social services came to see my wife yesterday and imposed restrictions. I'm really worried that they will take the kids away
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Thats all at the moment

How old are your children

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
9, 11 and 17
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 11 days ago.

Ok. It is likely that there will be restrictions on your access to your children because of the nature of the allegations. You need to stay focused and to ensure you are properly legally represented. The children wouldn't be taken away from your wife only that you wouldn't be able to live in the same house with your children.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Social services have said because my wife is supporting me that it makes her a risk to the children, so if I do get access there will need to be another adult present as well as my wife. So there will always be one other there

Do you know of any solicitors who can help in my area?
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 11 days ago.

I understand and that is the complication of the matter. Your wife can still support you but from a distance to avoid your children been taking away.
