Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wale?
-You state that there is no court order in place, but there appear to be live proceedings? Is this your application for a child arrangement order (for her to live with you)? If so, when is the next hearing and have CAFCASS undertaken their initial enquiries and made recommendations to the court?
Thank you - were CAFCASS aware of the other issues (drug abuse/neglect etc?) and if so what did their initial recommendations state?
Thank you - whilst prostiituion in itself is not a child protection concern, if you feel that your child is being exposed to unsuitable adults or sexual activity, or that she is unable to provide the appropriate care and protection due to this, then you should make an urgent application for a hearing to consider this and for an emergency placement in your care.
Furthermore, legally as there is no court order regulating contact there is nothing being breached and there is nothing that can be enforced if you were not to return your child to her care.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
