child protection and safetyThe Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services exists to protect children from risks of harm.

Forge Legal’s Family Law Division have exceptional experience representing clients involved in situations or circumstances where the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services have removed a child from their environment. Whether for reasons of alleged abuse, inability to adequately and properly care or to protect a child, it is pertinent to note and understand that there are always two sides to a story. Although a one-sided Application to the Children’s Court with evidence may request the removal of a child from a person’s care and protection, it does not always mean that the Court will always favour the Application. As such, the Court may not necessarily approve the Application.

It is imperative that during these times, you are represented by a legal practitioner, to allow the best possible arrangements to be negotiated and implemented. Forge Legal’s Family Law Division have decades of experience in strategy and negotiations regarding child protection matters. We fight for your best interests and also for those of the child. Countless times we have represented those seeking assistance to:

  1. defend Applications from the Department for temporary assessment;
  2. defend Applications from the Department for child protection; and
  3. assist with negotiations between yourself and the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.

During these situations, it is necessary to ensure that your position is heard loud and clear to ensure that the best possible arrangements are put in place and implemented to maintain communication and contact with your child.

I had Hayley Kennedy do my divorce and property settlement which included some complicated parenting orders. Hayley was thorough, caring and explained things really well during this difficult time . I appreciated her knowledge and advice that really helped me sort out issues I didn’t even know I should - to avoid problems down the track. Great lawyer!
