Any Judges who deal with family law/social workers?

I have a question that I want to ask is there someone on here who I could message?

I think judges are probably not allowed to answer questions as it can get them into trouble actually. You might find a family law solicitor on here however.

A family law solicitor is good just anyone with legal knowledge of the family would be a help lol

You're going to need to post your question. You can't really expect solicitors to provide you with a free online personal advice service. The solicitors who post here do so because their advice can be helpful to many readers and they are very generous to do so.

HowDoYouExplainThis Sun 05-Feb-17 16:18:02

No I'm not. There is a reason as to why I can't otherwise I would've post in the first instance.

Maybe you'd be better seeing a solicitor and paying for their advice then.

Not sure anyone will reply tbh.

To be honest if its that sensitive you can't post it I would caution against sending private messages to someone online, you don't know them from adam and there is nothing to say they won't share what you have told them

HowDoYouExplainThis Sun 05-Feb-17 16:55:14

I would of happily paid for a solicitor on here so if you're not actually going to provide anything useful please stop refrain from commenting.

There is a reason I can't post directly on here an inbox is fine.

I think you need to listen to the advice above, it is useful so don't be so snippy.

Anyone could say they're a family lawyer, get you to pm them your oh so sensitive question, then come back and post it on the board, send it to the daily mail, people it involves, anything.

Pay a lawyer, then you'll get guaranteed client confidentiality.

Think about it.

Spectulating- but are you disagreeing with decisions made by social workers? If you have any concerns regarding safety of a child every local authority has an out of hours team, who'd be open now- if you have legitimate concerns please report. If it's just a legal question- follow the good advice above.

HowDoYouExplainThis Sun 05-Feb-17 19:57:57

anyone could say they're a family lawyer but if they're not they won't be able to give any advice on the issue. The daily mail couldn't give a flying hoot, i'm not naming anyone for them to even begin to message the people it involves.

Regina not even a court case as of yet for their to be a decision lol

People are a big reluctant to give advice as you can be liable even if you are not paid under English law, that's the trouble but keep asking and someone might be able to help.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Mon 06-Feb-17 09:48:38

so if you're not actually going to provide anything useful please stop refrain from commenting.

Sorry but it is an open forum. You don't get to decide who does or doesn't post.
