help!!! im losing my children as my wife is using them as

Customer Question

im losing my children as my wife is using them as a weapon and stopping me having access to our children as Paul (9) has said in school that over 3 months ago i made him sit down to eat his breakfast by grabbing him round his neck (so untrue). So head teacher called in social on the 4th June and have not seen then jet as they believe that this is such a low priority. So now my separated wife Claire is using her powers to stop them seeing me. Claire is also the safe guarding governor at this school and is in close links with the head teacher. I am powerless until the social services see our boys (the other is Jack (12)). I am trying to deal with divorce nicely but she is not and also making false allegations. I have not got a solicitor jet as I dont know which one is the best for me. Oh i have been a hands on father through out the years, ie taking them to school every morning and been involved in building two school floats where my designs have won two awards and built podiums for school sports days etc..

Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Is the Mediation dealing with Financial issues or Contact?
What would you like to know about the matter?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

this is the second mediation set up by claire solicitor, im guessing it is because i responded to them asking why she did not go through mediation. I guess it is for both but my priority is for me to gain EQUAL access to the boys. Finances ive already offered 50%,

I am wanting a solicitor who can help/win my case so that we share everything equally. I have set up a time line from Jan 2014 and the official seperation day was easter school holls. The amount of lies in there is amazing all trying to bring my reputation down. Luckliy our friends are siding with me as they dont like what Claire has become.


Also the alligation took place i believe on a skiing holiday and our friend is shocked and disbelives this alligation too as he was there all the time.
