Hi, thank you for your question. Social services can only remove your child by your agreement, a court order or into police protection and this can only be done if your child has suffered or is at risk of suffering harm.
What other concerns have they raised apart from the father?
Thank you for confirming. Social services obviously have concerns about the father, however if you are making efforts and you prevent him seeing the children and there are no further concerns then they will have no grounds to attempt to remove the children.
In the circumstances, the best thing to do is to attend the meeting and see what they have to say, and in the meantime to continue your cessation of contact between you and the father, and between the father and the children.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
