The SS gave me a hand written note to sign when they told me to leave my home saying:-
This is a written agreement between Mr Me and City Council on ...Oct 2014 This is not a legally binding document however if the agreement were to be broken SS may have to consider taking further action to ensure the children's welfare. Me is not to visit or reside at the Family Home No contact will take place between Me and 9y 7y and 4y until a supervised arrangement has been agreed between SS, Me and wife The above includes all social media Signed Me Wife SS worker
I broke this agreement after 2.5 weeks of streets flu and homelessness and I became suicidal due to that I couldn't sleep and recover. I hid myself from the children I just needed a nights safety and sleep.
Qa. How do you think I should respond to this document now 7 months later?
After the court success I thought I was an innocent man and I wanted to go home and my wife agreed that if SS ok's it then yes. I told the SS I was going back to the family home but they said the local authority would not support that, so I didn't go.
But because I said I was going, I think the SS got a heavy weight family solicitor for my wife to write to me saying:-
28th April 2015 We have been consulted by your wife and we are advising her under the Legal Help at Court Scheme. We are instructed by her that after an incident on ...Oct 2014 you left Family Home. You are currently having supervised contact to your children and are undergoing a Social Work assessment. We write to inform you that our client's instructions are that the relationship is now at an end. On her behalf, we ask that you not return to Family Home, and that you do not assault or pester her in future. Otherwise our client would no doubt give us instructions to make an application to the court for an injunction that you not enter Family Home and that you not assault or pester her. Please would you acknowledge safe receipt of this letter. Please be advised that this letter contains important legal information, we would advise you to seek independent legal advice. Signed solicitor
Qb. How do you think I should respond to this document now?
One of my colleagues mentioned its best financially to not get divorced, because you can better look after the money without it all being monitored like it is after you get a divorce.
Qc. Can you confirm he's probably right, probably the best thing financially is separation and not to divorce? Also does it matter either way when it comes to custody being granted or decided?
