Our Children team at Ringrose Law is one of the largest in the County. The team, headed up by Costa Kyriacou, assists clients every day with a range of children and family law matters.
As key workers, we continue to provide advice and ‘attend’ Court hearings relating to urgent children matters and domestic abuse issues. New applications can still be made to the Court.
Costa Kyriacou, Head of the Children Law Team comments;
“We have a large experienced team of case workers in our Children Department. We deal day in day out with families who are involved with the Local Authority and Social Services. The current climate has thrown us all into a situation which none of us have previously had to deal with. Our team are to adapting in a way that we can continue to offer our clients the support and advice they need in this difficult time.”
We are aware that domestic abuse will continue and could of course increase due to isolation and victims finding it difficult to flee from the situation. We want to make victims aware that support services are still available to provide support where possible and in turn we will be available to assist with necessary applications.
Issues surrounding children in care proceedings and child protection proceedings are also still active together with contact problems between separated parents. The Court has declared that where possible all hearings will be heard remotely via telephone or video link.
