Customer Question

my ex partner did not returned my children on the correct day saying he thought it was the following day, I phoned the police as I could not reach him on his phone, they said they could not do anything as it was not a criminal matter but said to take it back to court, my partner knows I can not afford a solicitor and he takes advantage of this fact, he is in breach of the court order. is there anything I can do

yes

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes there is but he is saying I got the date wrong although a neibour was at court and I had to ask her for school holiday date so he could write it in his diary and put the date on a piece of paper to give to me so I have a witness

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes he had a very good solicitor and I could not afford one the judge would not listen to me saying I was immature so he got three week ends out of 4 which I said was to much but judge ruled in his favour, one of his relatives work at court and gets on very well with the judge
