my partner and myself have separated.

Customer Question

Hello my partner and myself have separated.I ended the relationship after 2 and a half years of emotional/verbal/physical abuse.I have a6 year old daughter from a previous relationship and a 6 month old baby son with my now ex.My ex has denied my suggestion of seeing our son via a contact centre and also declined mediation.I don't want to stop him seeing our son though I prefer if he visited our son supervised.My sons father is a drug addict and has narcisistic personality disorder.He wants to and can afford to go to court whereas I cannot and I don't think I am entitled to legal aid at present. Any advice on what I should do next? my partner has been issued with a harassment charge and has been given a restraining order,there is a possible child abuse charge on my daughter too. Many thanks in advance,kind regards Kelly

Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What contact is he asking for?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He wants unsupervised meetings with our son.I don't want to see him,he thinks it's a good idea for him to see our son at his friends parents house.I do not know his friend or his friends family i do know he can manipulate them in some way or other.He manipulates everyone.

He tends to think he can have our son 3 weekends a month unsupervised surely this isn't true?


Kind regards
