Jordan is now 13. He was born 27/06/01. He has lived with me since June 2013, so almost a year and a half.
I apologise Clare, I should have said thank you and hello. My name is***** am currently at work so only checking in a rush every now and then.
My Dad definitely agrees as he is the one that placed him with me. Jordan goes to Dads every other weekend. He is the one that has told me to seek legal advise as he has been told that Jordans Mum can take him no matter what we do.
I'm not so sure about his Mum. She is upset at the moment as Jordan refuses to see her (he used to go to hers at weekends too) and we do not force him to. We haven't heard from her since June and now all of a sudden she is interested again. She tried to get him to move in with her earlier in the year. He was going to and then changed his mind at the last minute. Apparently she had cried to him and said if he moved in with her she would get a new house..... He asked to come back to mine so Dad brought him back. If ever Jordan wanted to go back to either parent I would never stop him, but at the moment he doesn't want to and he is scared she will just take him. When she let him come back, she said to me that's it, you can have him until he leaves home now. But that was just words and she changes her mind frequently. This weekend when he went to stay with Dad, she had been moaning to the family about Jordan not wanting to visit her and so he had my aunt and her partner full on shouting at him which led to him to run out crying. At this point he was brought back to me. So after the episode yesterday, I probably will have a battle on my hands.
Thank you for your advise. I will be following up with this and hopefully things go well.
