i did look into other options before I had to reconcile with him.
the other options were I spoke to social services as well as my health visitor did and we failed as they did not acknowledge our referral. I spoke to the police and said that I am the primary carer and the children need to be In my care but they said that is civil matter. I spoke to two solicitors firms with the 60 minute free they offer and they said that we can take this to court but my chances are slim of getting the children straight away as the handover was done by the police.
they said it can take months before I can have my children , there is no guarantee that I will get the children back even if we did an emergency residency order
I rang the 2 police officers who came at the scene as it was agreed with them that my ex brings the children back when the situation is calm but they did not call me back.
please advise me what other options I had???
my complaint is that it has come to my attention that when a child is removed form the primary carer the police/social service can only remove a child for 48 hours and then have to apply in court for the child to be still not placed back at the primary carer and that did not happen. if that would have happened then I would have not had to reconcile. I tried all the options that were available to me and then my last resort was to reconcile as he had said that if I reconcile he will bring the kids. I would have not been in this situation had the police believed me and done proper check on his name and they would have seen police history on him which are gbh cannabis/ cocaine conviction. prison sentence for fraud. harassment cases from 2 other women.
obstruction on a police officer.
I have all his police history thrugh the caff cass officer as the courts granted the caffcass officer permission for me to have the caffcass report holding his police information
I want to claim compensation for
the police not believing me (fwin report confirms they did not believe me)
the police failing to do the checks on him when I gave them his real name.
the social services not acknowledging our referral and just stating it is a civil matter
the correct procedure not followed when kids were removed from my care.
a court order should have been filed after 48 hours for my children to remain away from me
