The mother has once a month supervised and once a week via skype.
The father has every other weekend for 1 day not sleeping.
however we have now only allowed the father supervised due to his drug taking, dealing and driving with the child in a car without a license, insurance etc.
well, are we entitled to any financial help, my husband earns too much to receive working tax credits or even family allowance. My husband is 63 and im 46, I have had to give my job up to look after the child, and now we are in a situation that means that we can only take holidays during school holidays, although we love him dearly, our whole life has been turned upside down by him living with us, by way of restrictions etc.
No unfortunately not
No, he attends swimming club, trampolining club and gyyymnastics club, of which the parents know about and are not interested in supporting, or even asking about, at banytime.
no, initially the child was handed to us by the mother who said she couldnt cope, and he has stayed with us ever since. The social worker tried on 3 occasions to obtain a PLO (care order), The social worker said that if a PLO was not granted then the child should be returned to his mother. which we fought and won, then at the final hearing everybody including the social worker supported our application for Child Arrangement Order.
