ex breaching order. has done so in past and have gone to court to get her to comply. was put on warning on last order but is breaching again. cannot afford to keep going to court. she gets free aid I have to pay. Is there nothing I can do?
Our daughter starts school in the autumn and I am supposed to be taking her on her first day as she is with me for the last period of the holidays but I dont even know what school she has been enrolled in. My Ex will not communicate in any way with me though she has been ordered by the court to use a communication each week on collection/return of our daughter. For the last 12 weeks she has not used the book and I have to write on sheets of paper though I have got scanned copies of all my sheets and scanned copies of every page in the communication book until she ceased using it as the school holidays draw near.
Apologies for delay in responding. Was at work

Believe I have found the school school she is going to but they will not talk with me as they don't know who I am. Time is running out and really need to know for certain so I can buy uniform, books, bags etc.
Should I go to the school I think she has been enrolled in and take court order with me? And my Daughter? Where do I stand regards ***** ***** her continually breaching court order with apparent impunity. Is there really nothing to do. Courts are expensive and she knows I haven't got money to use them all the time. have borrowed from family and friends to get this far but it seems the courts are really useless if she can simply ignore their orders and all I can do is go back to them (more money borrowed ) just so she can ignore them a few months done the line.
How do you know that she will no longer get legal aid? She has been getting it since our divorce 2.5 years ago. What would I need to do to bring her to court myself. How would I go about it?
