Clare, hello, before I get too deep into this question, would you please confirm something about costs. I only want one question answered and do not want, nor can afford, to start any monthly deductions.I'm assuming that the £36 deduction from my card is for this one off question request. Can you please confirm that this is true before we continue.Many thanks,John
Clare, Firstly many thanks for sorting out the monthly DD paying issue, very much appreciated.
In terms of physical violence - a lot around March and April this year but when the police were called our daughter denied it (even though my wife was there and witnessed it) so nothing they could do. Social Services did come with some anger management courses and monitoring. After that it turned to mental abuse with occasional physical the last being last week when he knocked down and dragged out of the flat and locked the door.
The dreadful thing is that all this is witnessed by our 20 month old granddaughter.
Now she has told him she wants to leave him but all is being offered is a refuge when all her clothes, furniture that we've bought plus all the baby's clothes and toys (again bought by us) are there.
I suppose the real question is what rights has she got to stay there and get him out (although she is a secondary name on the lease.
I hope this helps,
With best regards,
Sorry fro delay in replying; I'm not sure of the date but certainly our daughter didn't report it and told us yesterday that it was "her fault".
I've certainly seen her provoking him for no good reason and wonder if she is getting a sort of battered wife syndrome.
We have no real idea if she really wants to part from this guy so our concern if our granddaughter and want to be prepared for the worst.
I'm not sure that this helps and thank you.
With kind regards,
