Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wales?
-When was the order made?
-How old are the children?
-What does he not adhere to in the order?
-What changes have you made to the arrangements?
Thank you - are you able to attach the court order using the paperclip icon please?
Thank you - I will request that customer services delete those files as they contain confidential information.
In response to your query, the court order has specifically allowed for contact to take place and if the arrangements were not working you should have applied for a variation to the order. The father is therefore within his rights to apply to enforce the order, however the court will consider whether you had reasonable grounds to not allow contact to take place as per the order.
In the circumstances you may wish to consider pursuing a cross-application to vary the current order as it appears to not be working in the interests of 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 your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
You will need to complete a Form C100 and provide a £215 court fee to the same family court and request for it to be joined to the proceedings issued by him and heard simultaneously.
You can approach local firms or if you search for "direct access" barristers then can discuss representing you at court.
