Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How old is the child and what reason did the Judge give for this decision?
when was the order made and did both parties and the cAFCASS officer give evidence?
How long has the child lived with her father and what contact has your daughter been given?
