Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Could you explain more about the background to the position please
I can certainly offer you a phone call - but I will not be able to speak to you until tomorrow
It woudl help if you could give some background before we speak
All you need to do is sign back into the site when you are ready!
What does she wish to stop (prohibit) you from doing?
Are the school aware of her problems?
How old are the children?
Are they aware that you take over the care of the children when mum is "ill"
(I wonder of your ex realises that her mental health condition will have to be fully disclosed within these proceedings....)
It would be helpful if you could get something in writing from the school to confirm what has happened to take with you to court.
I woudl suggest that you attend the hearing to morrow with a chronology of the last 12 months and request an adjournment so that
1. You can seek legal advice
2. Urgent safe guarding checks can be done by CAFCASS
I can call you in the morning if you would like -
Children and Family Court Advice and Support Service
They will prepare a report and identify any safeguarding issues - in your case there are many relating to your ex's mental health
You can ignore the PD reference.
Take anything that shows that you regularly take over the care of the chidlren when she is ill.
Stay calm and polite.
Take someone with you and ask that they come in with you as a "Mackenzie Friend" to give you support and help with taking notes and sorting paperwork.
