Why children need a solicitor

Family law

During times of family conflict, such as divorce, children have the right to have their views heard. One of the best ways to do this in the legal system is to provide them with their own legal representation.

If a Child Arrangement Order has been put in place by the courts and the child objects to the arrangement, he or she has the right to instruct their own solicitor to present their concerns, provided he or she is of appropriate age and has understanding of the situation.

Criminal law

Children also require special representation in the criminal jurisdiction. The age of criminal responsibility in the UK is 10 years; therefore, if a child under 10 years commits a crime, he or she cannot be taken to court. A child between 10-17 years can be brought before the criminal justice system.

Action can be taken against both children and their parents if the child is partaking in Anti-Social Behaviour. An anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) can be issued and a parenting order can be made if the child is behaving in a way that is likely to cause alarm, distress, or harassment.

Civil law

A child or young person cannot normally be sued for breach of contract because, in most circumstances, they cannot enter into a contract which is enforceable in a court.
