I assume that your daughter is the person that is restrained by the order. as long as you took steps to protect the children ie did not allow any actual risk at the time of the visit, I can not see how by your daughter visiting you by her own choice breaking the order imposes any guilt on you.The children have a right to family life under he European rights act and this means that they can only be removed from your care if by being in your care they are at immediate proven danger of harm and that no other court order would allow the risk to be reduced. Your daughter broke the order not you and you can argue that as the children were present, you acted in their best interests by not calling the police as it would have caused a unessential dramatic and unknown result that could have effected the children in a negative way. I assume that the order is for your daughter.

Hi Trapper, I would say you acted as any responsible parent would do by asking your daughter to leave given the circumstances. Your daughter left which was the responsible thing for her to do in this situation too. I don't see where social services have grounds to remove the children from your care given the situation. I also believe by not involving the police you avioded a situation which could in other cicumstances have escalated. Had that occured the boys could have suffered anxiety and stress.

I would say well done for handling a delicate situation appropriately and hopefuuly the judge will see it like that too.

Good luck at the hearing. The boys are lucky to have you.
