Hi
Thank you for your question. M
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What contact do you have with the child, how old is she, and what is it that you wish to know?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The contact is verually none existance, since the natural Mother, was told to move from the Grandparents Home,in October 2012,. 3 times in the last 17 months, and only for a couple of Hours,. Before October 2012 i would see her every 2 weeks for at least 4 Hours,

 

She is 3 years 4 months on 15th March,

 

I need to try and avoid the Guardianship going through,. and securing regular contact, with a view that she and i will live together in the future, as the Natural Mother is unfit to do so, and really does not want her full time,

The grandparents, are trying to excule me, and have even written in the Court Case report, that if anything happens to them before the 18 birthday of my Daughter they have a plan for there son and his wife, or a Neice of the family to take care of my Daughter in the years to Adulthood,

 

Many Thanks

David,
