Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
How old is the child?
How often has your partner seen her in the last six months?
When does contact start and end at the weekends?
Would a night in the week be realistic?
Has he any current concerns about her physical care of the children?
Have the school raised any issues
has he asked the school about that?
The fact that your husband had a drug problem three years ago will NOT mean that the child will not be placed in his care in the event that her mother cannot care for her.
He must continue with his court application to stop the continual threats and disruption of contact.
Whilst Social Services may be involved because of the previous case if they do ave concerns about the care given by the mother then they cannot remove her into foster care unless they can show that your husband is not able to look after her now - which he clearly is
It is unlikely that your husband will be grated every weekend now - but if he has her from school on a Friday to school on a Monday and overnight once a week plus half of any school holidays to start with this should make matters easier.
He has every right to attend parent's evenings - the school will give him a different time - and for you both to attend school events.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further dteails
No Social Services will not do that - when the matter was last in court he was facing a possible prison sentence - that is no longer the case.
The child is a little young for her wishes to have great weight - but the priority is to get the arrangements set out in an enforceable order
Yes if it had happened back then it MIGHT have been the result - but not now
It i snot so much that the Order is void - just that it needs re working now
