My name isXXXXX i have been fighting for my children for seven years, two reports were done by social services and the cafcas team. They were extremely biased in each report. Each one turned against me in favor of my ex -husband. I had to let my solicitor go as it was costing over 15,000. I then wrote a complaint to the cafcas team but unfortunately she covered up for the person who did the report. Saying that he has spent time exploring every avenues possible i don't thank that is true, also it made me think to my self that i was left feeling like a scapegoat for there blunders. Could you please tell me what to do next ? i'm actually representing my self in court on my own, as i do not have any funding.
hi Claire, thank you for your response regarding my case, My children are Ania and joshua paulin dob 29/11/01, 12/09/03. My children have been brainwashed by my ex-husband, they do not want to come home and live with me. I have tried my best to be a good parent. They say they feel sick everytime they see me. Going back to court to move forward to see my children . My ex-husband has full residence order, i don't know how to change the decision ? Also could the order be changed? they have half brother and a sister that miss them terribly, i just hope and pray that they will come back to me, i worry for there mental well-being.
Hi Claire, i have not seen them properly for around eight months now, i
worried that the bond we used to have as a family will be hard to recover.
The other children are five and four years old, they go to the same primary
School, but Ania my eldest is going to secondary School in September.
Actually Claire this year i did see them for a couple of hours, in costa coffee shop for a couple of hours. suggested by my ex -husband's solicitor. That i should spend some quality time. That went extremely well. The children seemed much more relaxed in that environment. But it all changed when my ex - husband suggested a family solicitor to get involved with the case, at the family court. Both my children said to me they don't want to see me any more only by telephone contact. When it went back to court a third time they wanted to stop telephone contact with until the next hearing in September. I hope they will change there minds and see me soon,
from a extremely worried parent faye
First of all Mr kelly held a meeting to discuss the section seven report. Children's guardian was appointed to the children 20/2/13.
3.2 my interview with both children was interesting for several reasons. Joshua takes the lead roles in conversations, invariably taking over or finishing sentences for his older sister,who allows this to occur. Both children retain an extremely negative view of their mother and there mother's home environment, but without going into specific detail. The fortnightly direct contact was suspended at the last hearing and replaced with telephone contact every three days of there choice. Last contact was held at costa coffee on mothers day, they told me they did not enjoy that because there was no activities to amuse them.
That contact stopped because it was mR p idea.
4.1 Both children are of mixed parentage, their mother being white british and father Mauritian. there are no issues however with language and the children's cultural needs are met by their family. 5.1 The children arein full time care with there farther, there areno known safety issues or risk factors regarding the children. The children are refusing direct contact with their mother because of physical and bruising. Disagree with that.
6.5 prior to living with there farther the children describes as separate familes, that is their two half siblings and their mumand stepdad wereone family, and felt like visitors. They told me, mum and dad to whoem i assume stepdad shout alot. They did not report any physical violence, but some emotional harm. faye
6.12 In order for there to be a change of residence and return to the mother's care a full explanations should be heard for the injuries and bruising all injuries. physical abuse, as well as reasons steadfast views of which has not been coached by the farther. progess with there mother should be in a safe environment. i have always gone for medical treatmeat, i have not abused my children, if i did the other two would have been taken away from me. I feel he has used me as a scapegoat, and also i believe he wanted them to live with a black family, i cannot believe we are a normal happy family faye
To be honest with with you Claire they did not Specified the situation in the whole case
Not at all for the finding of fact hearing, Also the last court case i did not turn up because the social workers report plus the Cafcass report suggested that the children should live with my ex-husband it was a shut case to fight the system.
Directions hearing about seeing the children through cafcas at Chemlsford Essex.
Good morning Claire, the residence order was made 16th July 2013. 2.
Having heard submissions the court further orders that the issue of contact should be reconsidered at a hearing on the 4th September 2013 for 30 minutes.
