Acting for grandparents in a foster care situation

Sandria acted for a grandmother in a case where several children had been removed from the mother and her current partner into foster care, initially due to neglect.

Whilst in foster care it became clear that the children had also been the victims of sexual abuse.

Sandria’s client was the grandmother of only one of the children, and she was able to establish contact with that one child, and ultimately have care of that child transferred to the grandparents. Part of Sandria’s resolution of this case was also to ensure that the child retained a relationship with those of its siblings who remained in care.
