Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney allows another person to manage your affairs in the event that you lose capacity to do so yourself.

Children's Hearings

The Children's Panel is a designed to assist with the welfare of children. When families experience significant difficulty or upheaval, it may be necessary for the Children's Panel to become involved to help resolve the situation. 

Social Work Investigations

Social work can become involved with your family for many reasons. Whatever the reason may be – it can often cause great upset and disruption to family life. 

Emergency Care Orders

Emergency protection orders (EPO) are issued with the aim of protecting a child from ongoing or imminent risk of physical, mental or emotional harm, where emergency action is needed. 

Grandparent's Rights

Grandparents can play a pivotal role in caring for children. While they don't automatically have rights, there are legal remedies available if access to their grandchildren is denied.


If you have suffered intimidating, abusive or unsettling behaviour on the part of a former partner, or anyone else, you may be able to seek an Interdict, or a Non-Harassment Order to protect yourself from such conduct. 

Exclusion Orders

An Exclusion Order temporarily suspends the rights of a person to enter a home. However an Exclusion Order must be combined with certain other orders such as an Interdict preventing the subject of the order from entering the home or remaining in the vicinity of the home.

Powers of Arrest

In certain circumstances, you may require special protection from the risk of abuse or harm. A Power of Arrest is an additional level of security which the court can grant in addition to an Interdict. A Power of Arrest allows police to arrest a person where they have reason to believe a person is in breach of an Interdict without a warrant.
