We regularly appear at the Sheriff Court on behalf of children and parents as a result of allegations against parents or children concerning a multitude of issues. 

These can include: a child being accused of committing a crime; parent or parents being accused of mistreating or failing to care for their children; children failing to attend school without reasonable excuse etc. If this occurs the children’s’ reporter will serve grounds of referral with statement of supporting facts. 

At the Children's Hearing if matters are denied the matter is sent to the local Sheriff Court for proof. It is imperative to seek immediate legal advice in these situations for experienced advice. 

  • Parents accused of neglect.
  • Sheriff court proof. 
  • Son or daughter accused of crime at children's panel.
