Will I be able to get my child returned to my care?

A Court will only remove a child from their parents care if they believe the child is in danger in their current surroundings. A Court would not otherwise remove a child from their parents care. Therefore for a child to be returned to the parents the Court and Social Workers need to be satisfied that the Childs best interests are at heart and the child will be bought up in a safe environment, lack of evidence to support this means the child is unlikely to be returned home.

The Courts and Social Workers will also be looking for the parents to be helpful, cooperative and attend all appointments set on time and demonstrate that they are committed to having their child returned to their care.
