Hi,E My parent has a court order to see my son at various times during the month. One of the contact times was after school for 2 hours. He is currently studying for his 11+ and we just found he was too tired to go and see her, then carry on with his study. Our solicitor did write to explain and we also offered another day to compensate (the weekend), but the Grandmother just started bombarding us with abusive texts. Now the summer break is here the contact has resumed as normal, the problem we have now is the Grandmother is saying she can return our child at whatever time she choses to as we "broke" the contact order first. (there are times set out on the order). She is only allowed to take him within a 20 mile radius of her home, and she also has to let us know if she is taking him out on a contact day. She refuses to tell us where she is taking him (stating it is absolutely none of our business). We have also had a problem where our Son didn't want to go for contact. Help would be appreciated. My son is 10, and I would also like to know if we are legally obliged to offer more time outside the court instructed times. Many Thanks
Not that I am aware.
No, she says its none of our business
We have no idea where he has been until he comes home. If we are told by my older daughter he is being taken out, we ask her where and she says its none of our business, but it will be within the radius.
Hi, thanks for the reassurance. The problem has been, previously she has been extremely irresponsible with my children, would that be deemed as important? Cafcass have acknowledged this in a report.
