Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Are there no other carers who could deal with the contact?
Could he not employ someone specifically to deal with ocntact?
Right I see!
Is this the first hearing?
Have you spoken to CAFCASS yet?
Still just to check - this is the first hearing?
What are the safe guarding issues with his mother?
That correction makes much more sense - but just for clarity - she gave the baby alcohol?
Does the child have contact with any of the other family members any more - other than his father?
My apologies for the delay - we are all working lawyers and i Had an urgent and unexpected Court hearing to attend
You really have done everything that you can and it is clear that you have tried to be fair in difficult circumstances
You have offered contact which is in line with your ex's disability and have clearly worked hard to facilitate it.
With regards ***** ***** mother the reasons for your concern are clear and realistic - and you shoudl focus on the fact that she has shown no desire to build up the kind of relationship with your child that would give you the confidence to agree to the request that are made of you
In terms of what you offer I suggest that you suggest that your ex employs a carer to help; he sees the child with yo: or he finds a Contact Centre able to cope with him and that in the mean time his mother agrees to see your son on a regular basis with you so that she can build a relationship with the child so that contact with her as supervisor can start in the future
This would show that you are flexible - and is unlikely to happen since she will not be willing to make the commitment!
Please ask if you need further details
I hope all goes well
