Re: Where do I stand as a auntie

<t>Kel1981, I still believe it would be useful for you to ask for a meeting with the social worker.<br/> <br/> The first thing you need to find out is what your nephew's legal status is, as this will affect how you proceed from here. There are various possibilities, and I will just say a little abou...

Re: Where do I stand as a auntie

<t>Hello kel1981<br/> <br/> I think that your wish to have contact with your nephew is something that you have to approach very carefully. If you can put yourself in the position of the youngster himself, and those who have been responsible for his care and welfare for the last eight or nine years o...

Re: Advice need re. Residency Order

<t>It sounds as though you are giving your mum fantastic support, through what must be a very difficult time for your family.<br/> <br/> From what you have said, there are a couple of reason why a Special Guardianship Order might be the better option for your mother:<br/> <br/> 1. It is harder to ov...

Re: outcome of contact review

<t>I can't believe a judge is going to have much patience with his/her express directions not being carried out. You should make your own notes of what was said to you about why contact was not agreed, and also bring any minutes or anything else in writing from the meeting, if it reaches you in time...

Re: where do i go

<t>I think that you need to think now about what legal status would be best for your grandchildren, and for making sure that you get the support, financial and otherwise, that you will need to do the best for them.<br/> <br/> It may be too early to say, but you should start thinking about whether th...

Re: Please welcome David R

<t>I am very impressed by how much sensible advice is being given on this forum, as well as the moral support which people who have already been through these type of situations can give to those who are just entering into them.<br/> <br/> What really strikes me is how hard it must be for people who...

Re: Special Guardianship

<t>On the subject of contact, the 'no order' principle applies to the making of contact orders. That is to say, the court will not make an order specifying frequency and length of contact, unless making the order is better than not making the order.<br/> <br/> If you can show the court that you are ...
