Dear LMG123

Welcome to the parents’ discussion forum and thank you for posting.

My name is Suzie, online adviser at Family Rights Group.

It appears that you are currently in court proceedings relating to your son. I am not sure if they are care proceedings since you say you have gone back to court having made changes and had a positive assessment.

Your son was removed from your care because you were in a domestically abusive relationship. There would have been safeguarding concerns for your son and well being in that environment.

You say you have had a positive assessment and there are no concerns in respect of your ability to care for your son. Children’s services (new name for social services) do not appear to believe that you are separated or have concerns that you are going to resume the relationship. Has your son’s grandfather been looking after him or applied for an order to have grandson live with him permanently.

Whether or not your son returns to your care will be a decision for the judge based on the evidence he or she has to consider and, more importantly, what is best for your son in the long term.

You have given limited information about your situation so I can only offer advice based on what you have said. Does the children’s guardian support your son returning to your care.

I suggest you read this advice sheet Reuniting children in the care system with their families which gives information where a child is in care.

You may also find it helpful to read information here relating to domestic violence.

Should you wish to speak to an adviser, you can telephone our advice line 0808 801 03666. The advice line is open from 9.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday.

I hope this is helpful.

Best wishes

Suzie

Dear Milka84

Thank you for your post which you have posted several times. Clearly, you are anxious about the forthcoming hearing in respect of your son's mother's application that you breached the court order in respect of her contact.

In your post you state that she failed to have contact on 52 separate occasions. This is a lot of missed contact for the non-resident parent. The reasons you have given will be considered by the judge to find out if they are reasonable. As your son is only 3 years old, the judge might consider that he cannot make decisions about whether contact happens or not. If he was unwell on occasions, then you may need to provide medical evidence.

I am responding to your post with suggestions because you have a hearing but the remit of our service does not cover private law proceedings. You may wish to contact Child Law Advice for assistance as they offer advice in private law cases. Their telephone number is 0300 330 5480.

Best wishes

Suzie
