The risk to my son is where are the weapons kept when my son would be in his father's care? He has a previous conviction for possession of a deadly weapon and obviously still owns and carries these.
Secondly, what is his mental state and is he even capable of looking after a young child since the court order was made. It is my opinion and that of children services that the crime of stabbing someone can't really be committed by someone of sound mind.
And thirdly, can I be assured that no form of retribution will be sought by the stab victim or his family and friends, potentially while my son is in his father's care.
Furthermore, my husband was meant to take my son back to the uk for contact in April since I can't travel due to pregnancy. However now my son's father has made threats against my husband, I am concerned what will happen if they start fighting in front of my son.
No, I have an email from child services stating he was involved in that incident, and have had a conversation with a social worker on the phone who recommended I go back to court to have the contact order reviewed and said in the meantime break contact. The problem is that I really can't afford another court case and also seems harsh that once again I have to pay and ask permission to safeguard my child from someone who is a dangerous criminal?
No I contacted CPS and they couldn't give further information as it is an ongoing investigation so no conviction as yet or surely it would be public record.
The court order was made in June 2013. No there is no one who could take my son instead of my husband.
Furthermore, in terms of contact it would have to be my husband taking my son as he can use a trooper flight. In my original statement to court I suggested that the CSA money my son's father paid would be put towards travel costs, however he has not paid since he lost in court. Even if I could have someone else take my son we would be paying over £600 in back and forth flights.
No, my mother and brother live in the uk but neither of them drive and would refuse to have contact with my son's father.
However even with someone to handle the actual handover I would still be concerned for my son due to the other reasons given. Children services recommendation came before the threat to my husband as well.
