There is a wealth of information in this section to help you get your children back or to fight in court to keep them if the “SS” are on the attack!
This includes help in drafting a statement for the court which you will find under “Your statement“.
You are advised to read ALL the legal information in this section first however so that hopefully you are better informed before writing it out.

Remember always that it is a waste of time attacking individual social workers (who investigate themselves) and fosterers who, if they are looking after your children should be cultivated and made friends with however much you hate the idea!
Make friends with the fosterers and potential adopters if you can meet them as this way at least you can keep track of where your children are! Attack in court with all your force both the reasons why your baby or your child was taken into care,and the system that allowed this to happen!
Remember also that if children are 16 or more they will often be released from care. Sometimes however the “SS” take a particular dislike to a family and say they will keep the child until 18 when the care order must expire.
NEVER MIND! There is a way out ! If a child marries at 16 then the care order ceases! A marriage anywhere in Scotland does NOT need parental consent. Take the hint!
