The Child Law Advice Service

The Child Law Advice Service provides legal advice and information on family, child and education law affecting children and families in England.

The service is provided via our website packed with how to guides and information pages. A dedicated intensive support telephone line is also available for complex matters and clarifying questions.

What we do

We cover legal issues that may arise following relationship breakdown as well as Local Authority intervention and child protection issues. 

Our education advice ranges from admissions issues to exclusions as well as what to do if your child is being bullied to how to get help for your child if you suspect they have a Special Educational Need. 

The Child Law Advice Service is part of Coram Children’s Legal Centre, the UK’s leading children’s legal charity, and falls under the Coram Group.

The advice line

We operate a limited intensive support telephone line for complex matters and clarifying questions. The demand for this line is high and the funding we have in place is limited thus we are only able to answer a limited number of calls.

We would therefore ask you to carefully read through all the relevant available data provided on our website and only contact our intensive support telephone line with genuine, clarifying questions on the information provided.
