I and my sister live together for the past 6 years, she gave birth to a disabled girl, the girl has been cared by me and I have been trained to care for the child by the NHS and the social services.
Although, their are no disputes over contact, I want to have contact (arrangement) order formalized by the court and wish to know if I still need to go through MIAM even if my sister not contesting my application. Thanks
yes the child's father is named on the birth certificate, but he is not living with the child, because he is barred by the court to visit the child.
me and my sister living together at present but this is likely to change in the future.
because i am trained to care for the child and the mother is agreeable to the same, the child will stay with me 5 days a week.
my sister has another child to care for.
My sister is agreeable for the child to stay with me 5 days a week and 2 days with her.
