Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
I she likely to want to have the care of the child?
Sorry - it was the father I was referring to.
If both parents agree that you should have the care of the child then there is no reason why the applictaion should not be successful.
If he does wish to have the care of the child he will have to have a formal assessment - and from what you have said his chances of success are very limited
Please ask if you need further details
At the moment you do not need to do so.
There is no reason to think that there will be a problem.
Only if the Report is not favourable may you need assistance - and you should then look on this website
