Re: Partner arrested for possessing indecent images.

OneTimeBadDad,

Thank you for such an excellent and insightful post. Forgive me in advance, because I fully intend to steal your analogies!

Have a good Christmas,

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi MLC, Your points are well taken. This was in the English courts and initiated by myself. You are so right about the affordability of family law - I wouldn't want you to think that I don't realise that being able to fight a case like this is a privilege (even though it shouldn't be, of course). Th...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Morning May, just wanted to give you some warm words this morning, sounds like you've had a miserable weekend. I hope you have spoken to your solicitor this morning/today and have had some advice. Hopefully Suzie will pick up on those things that they find most important. Why not give FRG a call? My...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, Solicitors and barristers are both types of lawyer - I'm using lawyer to mean solicitor here. As I say, I'm not sure that a second opinion is necessary - the psychologist is broadly supportive of your case, although you might not see it like that at the moment. This is something you should t...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, Unfortunately I can't write too much this evening but I did want to say: keep calm! It is good that they are making the referral for you too. You are sounding very reasonable indeed: you are taking things step-by-step, where your relationship is a secondary issue to i) protecting the childre...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, Sorry to hear that the report wasn't everything you hoped for. If it makes you feel any better, I was devastated after I received my psychologist report, which contained a lot of unpleasant words that really upset me. It took another two years before some sort of acceptable compromise was re...

Re: Advice needed, what should or can I do.

Morning HopefulDad As PSD says, you have not got a criminal conviction and you don't have and restrictions on you, so you can do as you did before the event from the legal perspective. However, as you have already found out, CS do not work to the same evidence level (balance of probabilities) as the...

Re: Married to a sex offender worried how this is going to affect our grand children

Thankfully, disqualification by association was essentially scrapped. We don't know the facts of Mitzi's case, she doesn't say what risks he poses/posed, only that he wasn't at risk of grooming. There are other risks he may have posed. It sounds like the family found some sort of compromise they cou...

Re: Experiences of sex offender living with baby

Hi hulahoop When I was on the SOR, I remember the police saying to me "you're not thinking of having kids with [my partner] at the moment are you? Children's services will give you a world of pain!" Judging by a lot of the stories on this forum, that was probably good advice! It seems to me that the...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi PSD, I'm glad that the time with the kids is going well. Don't write off contact centres, they can provide support through transition to unsupervised contact when that is appropriate and objective/professional evidence of your positive interactions with the kids. That might be something that coul...
