18 Months ago I was the victim of both physical and emotional violence from my husband. This caused our separation and because I was hospitalised my two children were placed on a child protection plan to protect them from my husband.
The medical report on myself was suggested by social services as part of the child protection plan.
The family law court requested only a section 37 statement from social services to assist them in a decision to grant the prohibiting steps order.
(my ex husband has previously taken my 12 year old son and refused to let him return to me)
The social services should have undertaken a single Social worker assessment, but had failed to do so since the previous Adjournment.
It says in the statement that the medical report will be covered in the single social work assessment. Much of the medical detail was historical and is no longer relevant to the current issues.
The medical statement was added as an appendix
We also made a formal complaint to them 3 weeks ago concerning other inaccuracies ( no response yet received)
Sorry not sure if message sent
The court hearing was yesterday and following unsatisfactory phone calls to social services an official complaint was made yesterday afternoon
we asked social services to do this we cannot approach him as we have a non molestation order in place.
Social services said they could not get the report back
Yes hearing has been adjourned till August
