We went in wanting sole custody mainly because we wanted the children to know they were going back to the same school. Basically the Judge decided that because the parents had decided to share custody that no order need to be awarded. The mum stuck to this for a month only, basically up until christmas.
To be honest she is really up and down. When my partner went to see her, she was rocking on the floor in front of the front door and josh was sobbing in his bed. My partner bought them back to our house to both stay over. The police then came into my house without me being aware checking that Josh was OK as her partner had reported her missing/fearing for her and Josh's life. That was the 14th Feb and since they she has advised she is not fit to look after them, on anti depressants and been seeing the children for a couple of hrs a week usually with us or her mum. On Monday this week she has been put on tablets for bi polar and insisted she had the children from school on Tuesday and insisted and would not back down her words "she is their mum" to pickup the children after school tonight and have them over night. Maddie (9 yr old) asked if she would be OK this morning. Our concern is the children don't know where they are and she has openly admitted she can't cope with them and now aggressively insists she will have them. We are at a loss as to what to do.
Hi Clare it was dismissed
Hi Clare - not as yet (that I am aware of) I know she is back to the doctors tomorrow. She has been having telephone counselling but the counsellor she had subsequently left (the downside is the mother is a continuous liar so difficult for us to know what is the truth) - I know you can't factor this into your answer.

Hi Clare, do you think it is possible to get a response today? Sarah
