Hello, thank you for your reply.
My daughter is 9 months old. I have had no contact with her for 6 months due to waiting for the Directional Hearing.
When my ex left, she was 3 months pregnant, suffering with Bi Polar and was associating with undesirables. I said to her mother that if she was going to continue behaving like this when our daughter was born, I would be forced to go for custody.
Because my ex-partner is Bi Polar, I believe she was worried that I wanted sole residency. I explained in Court that I was happy for our daughter to live with her mother as assurances were made that she is receiving the appropriate treatment. A residency order was made in favour of my ex-partner.
However, in the CAFCASS report, my ex-partner made accusations of harassment that she said happened over 6 months ago. To cut a long story short:
I asked my ex-partners mother when my ex was planning to sign the Birth Certificate (BC), she said she did not know (ex and mother very close) WE WERE ON GOOD TERMS.
I found out the BC had been signed without me 2 days after I asked;
I tried to contact my ex and her mother for an explanation, with no joy, so both my family and I tried again;
The police were called by my ex with the accusations;
The police informed me that it was not a police matter, they had read the messages and they were not aggressive or threatening but actually showed concern and advised me to go down the legal route, which I did.
I have had no contact with her or any of her family in 6 months, only through solicitor’s letters.
