Hi, thank you for your question. What are the arrangements contained in the court order?
Does it state how often you are to have contact?
Thank you - was there provision for alternative supervision (ie. a third party)?
Thank you for confirming. In the circumstances it would appear that you need to return the matter to court for a variation of the order as the current contact centre arrangement is not helpful due to their unavailability. You should prepare other proposals, such as supervision by independent third party.

Hi, I note you have left a negative rating. Please could you confirm what you are not happy about so that I can provide you with all the information you require to resolve this matter.
To go back to court you will need to apply using form C2 for an urgent hearing due to the contact centre not having availability and the mother not facilitating the days that they are available.
The court has clearly directed that contact should take place at a contact centre, but if you are able to propose, for example, a mutual friend to supervise then this may be a way forward to prevent contact not taking place due to the availability of the centre.
I hope this has assisted you further. If so, please consider amending your rating.
Age is not a paramount factor when deciding on a contact centre or not - contact centres are usually for parents who have not had recent contact, or if there are welfare or child protection issues that need to be allayed before it moves to an unsupervised basis - you may therefore have argument to have unsupervised contact if you return it to court.
Be aware that there is a £155 court fee to issue the application.
I hope it goes well. If you have any questions in the future you can ask for me directly by starting your question For Harris
