Re: Contact...

Hi and welcome. You raise a few issues, and I'll possibly make some incorrect assumptions. Apologies if so. 1. Parents being unreliable is an issue many of us have had to deal with. I can only suggest that you write, text or similar that you are happy that mum has contact, but you are not happy the ...

Re: Ending a SGO

If can do it on an agreed trial basis, then it's just a case of putting to the court as a position agreed between parties, so the court just rubber stamp the decision to deal with the formal legal position. Certainly under current restrictions, it's likely to be all done remotely with perhaps a vide...

Re: Ending a SGO

Hi @Cazdob and welcome here. I believe the social worker to be mistaken. It seems clear from the legislation that the SGO must be discharged which can be applied for either by the person holding the SGO or the parent. However, if you, the social worker and the mother are all happy to trial a return ...

Re: Finale court order

Hi Milka84. As a parent you need to sign-up and re-post in Family Rights Group - Parents Forum at http://www.frg.org.uk/ParentsForum/ .

Re: Need urgent advice

Yes iand yes are the answers. Remember, they will not be expecting you to know the formalities. Do your own statement with the explanation that you can't afford to pay a solicitor. Keep it factual where you can.

Yes, just ask the question. .

Good luck ... Robin

Re: Need urgent advice

Unless you are party to proceedings you may get to see nothing. If you are party, much is likely to come on the day of the advocates meeting. If not a party, you will need to apply to the court for 'leave to apply'. Speak to the court office. The paperwork is not too difficult but there is a fee to ...

Re: Previous dv

You would probably be best advised to call the advice line on 0808 801 0366 9.30am to 3pm. They are still taking calls but are also rather busy. To me the key issue here is that the local authority have to take matters very seriously, and also protect the children while they investigate. At least yo...

Re: I want to step forward during current adoption proceedings to have my grand babies living with me, not adopted out

Hi and welcome. The advice sheet at https://www.frg.org.uk/images/Advice_Sheets/11-powers-and-duties-of-local-authorities.pdf gives you most of the information you need. Page 10 onwards is specifically useful, but please take the time to read it all. Childrens Services should place within the family...
