Children’s Hearing

We are often instructed by parents and/or children who have attended or are due to attend a Children’s Panel/Children’s Hearing in relation to matters such as allegations against parents accused of caring properly for their children, allegation regarding the child having committed an offence, allegation regarding the child failing to attend school without reasonable excuse.

If such allegations are denied at a Children’s Hearing or Children’s Panel then the case requires to be referred to the Sheriff Court for Proof.

We can provide advice and representation in these areas.
