It clearly states this in the letter from the doctor being used as evidence.
letter is on image above
The letter showsthat the concerns are entirely those of the mother not based on previous actual assessments however the advice she has given is evidently precautionary based on the alarm created by Nathan's mother.
He shows no such traits with me. I suspect his behaviour reflects his mother.
Please seek to answer the question above
I have full weekends every other week and 2 hours midweek.
Some holidays arranged although short of what I have requested
The final hearing is seeking to agree further
Short of explaining the entire case I am needing help on a specific issue which is outlined above.
I am considering writing to the court and requesting a further directions hearing to discuss the evidence and also the fact that my ex partners own condition is by her own admission potentially damaging my son.
Please attempt to advise on the question of the "witness" statement provided by the doctor which only outlines a referral based on the mothers "diagnosis" running against the findings of 5 previous assessments.
My question is relating to procedure and the best way to deal with the "hearsay" that is being presented as evidence.
Thank you for this analysis;
It would be my preference not to delay the hearing.
I have applied for a specific issues order pretty much around the fact I have been wilfully excluded from matters pertaining to important decisions such as Nathan's medical and educational requirements.
It is my strong belief that my sons Mothers mental health issues and Aspergers syndrome effect his behaviour around her.
Coould you make any suggestions as how to present the view that my exclusion from this process is also hindering the view point of the doctor.
Also although I am sure the court will realise the probability of the reasoning behind the timing of the phone call my sons mother has made to the doctor (13th Jan 2014- 5 days after the directions hearing in which things were not going her way) is there much license in pressing that point?
I will outline where we are as upto now on the attached PDF
It started with 24 hours a week but to date court has done the trick wth me successfully getting a better arrangement but I strongly believe Nathan requires more time with me not least of which because of his mothers mental health issues effecting him (although this s not currently an argument I wish to use)
To date the Court Legal advisor's have both been very much onside and given me some advantages such as the staggered production of statements (with me seeing the respondents first then replying) as well as commenting on my ability to convey my statements and case well in the court room.
