Thank you for your' reply.
My son will be 6 on the 20th June.
The application for contact was rejected and the order was made in November of 2013.
The Cafcass officer did not follow the first order of the court to arrange contact for me and my son.
The Cafcass officer deleted email/s between myself and herself to hide her initial intentions, after meeting me for my interview, to arrange contact.
The actual reason for the Cafcass Officer doing this in my opinion is very clearly because she had not managed to get the work done as she had been instructed from the court.
The cafcass officer in her report used a self-admission of mine that I had asked my doctor for therapy after getting out of the abuse I underwent in the marriage from my ex-wife.
The Cafcass officer reported to the court that I had admitted undergoing counselling and as I had broke down "openly sobbing" in this interview, when she asked me to disclose an incident of the abuse I underwent from my ex-wife, (this was the very first time I had actually spoken out to anyone about the abuse I underwent), that I was emotionally fragile and therefore she advised the court to have me further assessed psychologically before allowing contact between my son and I even though my doctor had also made a clear statement to the court that I was of no risk of harm to anyone at all.
The Cafcass did not complete any REAL investigations towards my applications nor had she once looked at the wealth of physical evidence I offered her in the interview as he had noted that she didn't need it and she would get things arranged.
The Cafcass officer omitted and twisted certain facts of our interview to support her recommendation to the court.
At the second hearing; I informed the judge of these issues and he simply told me that it was my problem to sort with Cafcass even though the court instructs and makes decisions that are very heavily reliant upon the Cafcass officers recommendations.
There are other issues towards the court process, which became terribly bias after the Cafcass officers report but in essence as I attended the final hearing, the judge ignored the fact that I had requested the court receive either a copy of the Cafcass officers notes or a recording of the interview if it existed so that I could prove my statements towards the interview with Cafcass officer, the court ignored the fact that my ex-wife had made 2 absolute statements to the judge in the first hearing that the only reason my ex-wife was withholding contact was due to my supposed inconsistency, when the judge asked my-ex-wife if there were any reasons for withholding contact from me and my son. My ex-wife had, when I informed her that I was taking her to court as she was being very obstructive towards me seeing my son regularly, threatened me that she would make up spurious allegations of me supposedly being abusive towards her and my son, which she immediately dropped when the judge asked her for her reasons for withholding contact because I warned her of perjury, upon which my ex-wife confirmed to the judge TWICE as the judge asked her this again after asking the first time due to her making these initial spurious allegations.
I shall not go on but there are other such shocking issues that occurred but basically, once my ex-wife knew that the Cafcass officer was supportive, she again brought back the spurious allegations for the final (3rd) hearing.
