My house is very clean the fact we are asthmatic and moving from abroad I wasn't aware of the laws and social services all I knew was that police will stop him ... The same day ss took my children on police protection order and after one day on interim care order I was really vulnerable at that time ,alone in the country . I need help to get My children back as I can't live without them .... Please advice me

Find yourself a good family solicitor, as you being their birth mother you have parental responsibility and will get legal aid. As confusing as it is work with the social workers and get in touch with women's aid. I wish you all the best .

Welcome to the parents board. I am so sorry to hear about the difficult and distressing time you are having. I am glad that you have a solicitor working for you. I can see that other parents have given you helpful advice. You should also have a look at our information about care proceedings. It sets out the court process and tips on how to work with your solicitor. It also explains what significant harm means.

At the end of the court proceedings the court will be deciding where your children will be living. This could either be:
• Return home to you,
• Return home to dad,
• To live with family members or friends carers,
• If there are no suitable family or friends then the court may be asked by children services to consider adoption or long term foster care.

What assessments of your parenting ability has there been? –The court will be looking to see whether you are able to provide “good enough” parenting-which is also safe parenting.

At the same time, the court will want to assess any family (of both you and dad) or friends or people connected to your children to see whether there is one who could care for your children until they are adult.

Do you have any family who are able to do this, in case the assessment of you is negative? If so, it is very important that you give the social worker and your solicitor their names and contact details.
Has there been a Family Group Conference? This is where you as mum could ask family and friends to a meeting to see what support might be available within the family. Often this meeting is uses to find family and friends who could look after children long term. However, it can also be used to look for family members to support parents in caring for their children.

From the information you have given it appears that children services are most concerned about you being in an abusive relationship with your husband. They would have been worried that will have put your children at risk of serious harm. Have a look at effects of domestic abuse on children.

I hope this helps. Please post back with any questions or you could call our advice line for intensive support.
Best wishes,
Suzie

have you checked with woman's aid if there is a support group for ladies who have arranged marriages. I can understand that this can bring shame on the family but there are groups out there of people in the same situation, good luck
