My eldest son is 11, 12 in April, my middle son is aged 10 and my youngest son is 5...my two younger sons both have a diagnoses of A.D.H.D... They have been with my ex for nearly a month. Origionally I was ill and the doctor was called out who said I was to have bed rest...The social worker phoned my ex husband and reminded him of his parental responsibilities as I was really unwell to look after my children as I'd contracted the flu after over coming various illness including a chest infection, I was under the impression that it was only to be a week or two, however behind my back my ex and the social worker have decided that my ex should apply for residence. Social Services are no longer involved.
My husband has prevented me from having contact except via telephone
Are you still online? I'm at my sisters using her computer as I don't have access to my own so was just wondering if it's possible to move the conversation on a little bit quicker? (sorry) as I am going home soon and the court case for residency is this Thursday.
Thank You, XXXXX XXXXX getting a little worried, I'm quite frantic at the moment as I'm concerned about my children and missing them terribly. I'm also scared about losing them.
Anyway this Thursday will be the first hearing. I haven't applied for contact yet, do I need to put in for a contact order? I only found out my ex husbands plans last Monday so my sister and I went to pick my children up from school but they had been kept off, we went to my ex husbands mothers but wasn't allowed to see them that's when I learned about the custody order, we went to the police station but they couldn't do anything.
With kind regards
Sorry these questions aren't showing up straight away... No I hadn't made any plans with my ex husband as I was told by the social worker that we both had parental responsibility so I thought if I collected my children they would still be in my care. My ex-husband has put in for a prohibited steps as well as residency order and filled in another form which indicates that my children are subject to abduction and he is saying that I am emotionally abusing my children...I am aware of the game he is playing to the courts and I'd like advice to avoid such a nasty way of dealing with this case. I do however have my own concerns as I feel he is doing this for financial reasons as he cleared out my two elder sons savings accounts but I haven't collected the evidence of the receipts yet due to the fact that the children were in my care as we were settling our divorce. I didn't push for financial or custody of the children as I was trying to be decent.
I live in a different city to my ex husband and don't drive or have anyone who can offer transport will this be taken into account in regards XXXXX XXXXX arrangements as my ex husband has a car?
Hi That makes mid week contact difficult but weekend contact should be possible Clare
