Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, So briefly, I'm an ex-offender with what looks like a similar history to your husband. It has taken several years including a few in court to regain normal child arrangements with my children (similar ages to your own), but I now enjoy an excellent relationship with them and it has all been ...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, Good luck, hope it all goes well and your way. I see a lot of positives here. I know it doesn't feel like things can ever get back to "normal", but it can and they do. These assessments may not be the end of things and you might have more work to do, but time can work in your favour. Remembe...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, What a tough ride. Yes, I think you definitely need to that first social worker out of your mind - it's in the past but I know it repeats on you when people are so horrible. Reading between the lines, it looks like CS are prepared to support reunification if the evidence supports them. The i...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, My understanding is that forensic psychologists work from the evidence they have in front of them, supplemented by interview. In your case, there isn't much written evidence, so presumably s/he has requested what evidence there is, namely your medical records, I suppose to perform due dilige...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Dear PSD, When I read your posts, I wonder what I can say to be positive and perhaps advise on how to make things better. As I have said before, I am sympathetic to your position, the pain of being separated from your children, and I believe that not all men who view child abuse should be prevented ...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi Seadog, Sorry, I can't advise on that, my perspective is from going through private law where the court appoints experts and under those circumstances all parties agree on the expert being appointed, making it independent. Perhaps Suzie can advise on what the process is in public law and with res...

Re: Time together as a couple advice

Hi May, I know it's frustrating and when you're in the middle of it it's difficult to get any perspective. From the outside, the positives are that your husband is getting independent psychological risk assessment, which is stressful but ultimately provides evidence of risk. Just to give you some ho...

Re: sex offender dad my story

PSD, you started this thread saying you wanted to be constructive and provide advice on what to do to re-build families affected by online sexual offences. If you look below your first paragraph, there is nothing that provides constructive advice. You talk about yourself and how you are the victim. ...

Re: I am a sex offender father please help me

Seadog, As someone who has been there, I get where your husband is at the moment. Every day is like walking through treacle. I get that he feels that working and making money and contributing is the one last thing he can do before the axe falls. While I disagree with much of what PSD says, I do agre...

Re: I am a sex offender father please help me

City, I'm really sorry to see that you didn't get the outcome you hoped for. There are lots of positives in what you say though, more perhaps than you can see at the moment with your disappointment. Reading between the lines, a lot of the decision has been to do with the age of the children, who are...
