Family and criminal court over. What next?
Posted: Sun May 26, 2019 7:51 pm
Hi. I’ve never done this before but desperate for advice. Both my kids are under an sgo to my mum and I live with them so do everything. My sons father was convicted of causing facial bruising to my daughter (she has a different dad who is a waste of space and should’ve been the one convicted). Anyway the incident happened in 2016 and he was only convicted this year. He got 18 months has to serve 9. My question is once he’s released is there any chance of us being a family? Family court stipulated he had to do a parenting course which he is doing. He had regular contact with our son “supervised” by his mum, since being convicted it has been me and my mum taking our son to see him regularly. And there is nothing in the sgo or the previous court order that says he can’t have contact with my daughter. My worry is he’s currently focused and motivated in improving his life and being a family. His family have disowned me and our son and If that continues they will be strangers to our son and I don’t think they should be “supervising” or involved in our sons life. Hope this makes sense and hope someone can advise. I just don’t know what if anything I can do. Thanks x
