No I did not contact the school - all very last minute. I'm not happy with the move - but 6 months have passed and so I feel that 'trap door' has closed.
No I had not spoken to the school.
I'm not happy with the move - but 6 months have passed - so my view is more harm would be done by reversing (?) - that said I'm not happy about documents presented to the judge being fabricated and back dated.
Backdated - yes. and the letters written to order entirley for her convenience - it is a private special needs school, the principal has no educational qualifications.
I have 100% proof of this as an email dialogue that has recently been discovered.
The letters were written the day before the hearing and backdated to March, April and early July.
The school he was leaving. My ex-wife is friends with teh principal.
Indeed. My son has settled in well, as far as I know.
this connection appears sporadic!
I am in contact with the new school - but it is 4 hours away and I've not much to go on. My father died just after the move so I've been taking care of my mother etc.
I appreciate there is probably little I can do to re-address the move - but am not happy about the letters being presented and them being fabricated and post dated.
thanks for the response. My main concern is as to whether I had any way of taking up the fabrication of evidence which specifically lead to my withdrawl of my prohibitive steps order.
Not 100% on the terminology - but would this not constitute some form of offence? The letters were presented in court and were fabricated and back dated to address my concerns. I can't imagine the Judge would be impressed by such behaviour, or indeed the court system.
So I just have to take being cheated and do nothing?
I have not seen my son in 6 months. As you can imagine I am somewhat agrieved, especially in light of how the move was justified. Maybe a change to the situation is not likely - but I would like some form of recognition as to how my, and my son's, position has been adfversely affected
Indeed - but I cannot drive 4 hours collect my son drive 4 hours back and then repeat again in a day. I cannot have my son at my house it is not adapted for his needs. I also cannot afford the costs.
My ex-wife simply has to make him available. So I'm stuffed as she always says he is.
Back to my question.
Not sure which question... !
my view is that I have effectively lost my son, he's 4 hours away - and my current commitments (work & family - my father died last August so my Mum needs looking after & I have another little boy who I need to see) do not avail me the time to see my children, the journey and staying over etc are just beyond my reach (sorry if I appear impatient) - having been backed into a corner I just feel that the actions that put me in this situation should be at least brought in to the open, and (apologies if this sounds vindictive) those responsible should be held to account.
I have dwelt upon the aspects for nearly 6 months and just need to know what courses of action I have.
Goodness, a mere reprimand for fabrication of evidence.
I was first advised to go to the police (by the LEA covering the school as they are chasing the headmistress over other aspects and have had a view of teh dialogue) but thought to seek legal advice as what would be best, XXXXX XXXXX likely outcome.
I would have acted earlier - but my Father died just as this was going on (sob story eh?)...
many thanks for your help - whilst my situation is very frustrating and upsetting your advice has made me take more time to consider all of the factors.
I'm kind of relieved that the fabrication aspect will not see my ex 'banged up' (which, despite all the nonsense) is not something I'd want.
Hi I can understand your dilemma - but you will be able to use this in the future - and sadly I suspect you will have to Claire
