Introduced by the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007, Permanence Orders and Permanence Orders with Authority to Adopt are relatively new and significant provisions in the care of looked after and accommodated children. We act on behalf of local authorities making applications for Permanence Orders and Permanence Orders with Authority to Adopt. We successfully conduct proofs and procedural hearings in such cases in Sheriff Courts throughout Scotland.

We undertake all work necessary in the preparation, management and conduct of Permanence Orders and Permanence Orders with Authority to Adopt cases including interviewing witnesses, drafting, revising and finalising joint minutes of admissions and preparing and lodging inventories of productions. Through these cases, we achieve the best outcome for looked after children, working closely with legal services, social work departments and the many other agencies involved in their care.
