Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Social services will want to ensure that your son is not at risk of any emotional or physical harm or neglect when in your care. A mental health illness in itself is not a bar to caring for a child, but it will be his condition when unwell that will be of their concern and it is something that his consultant can assist with and outline - his opinion will be very helpful. You will need to demonstrate that you have insight into his illness and relapse indicators and that you have a plan in place to safeguard your son when your husband's health deteriorates.
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 your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
