Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
I am sorry to hear about the difficulties that you are experiencing with the father of your children.
Please may I ask: -
- when was the court order made?
- was you involved in those proceedings?
- what were the concerns that led to supervised only contact?
Thank you for your response - is the order that you have a final order? or is there another court hearing listed?
was there only one hearing?
can you attach the order using the paperclip symbol?
I am surprised that the court would finalise the proceedings on the basis of a hearing to which you have not been invited.
I would ask the court to send you a copy of the order asap.
Children cases have to be referred to a Children and Families Officer (Cafcass). I am therefore surprised that the proceedings would finalise without this happening.
If the proceedings are on-going - you will have a right to put your side to the story.
In any event if the proceedings have ended - then you can still apply back to court to enforce the order that you have in your favour. You can also apply for a variation of that order so that the court can consider unsupervised contact and if this can happen.
If the case has ended you would need to refer to mediation first before you can apply back to court. If mediation doesn't work - the mediator will sign the form that you need to apply back to court. It is the C100 form.
Let me know if I can help you further.

You need to ask a mediator - close to where the boys are living now. If you just google family mediation in that area and give them a call to get the ball rolling.
