,we live in England and my son's daughter who is 2years old lives in Scotland,his ex girlfriend has stopped all contact last 9 months . We have just found out her address and wondered do we need to get a Scottish solicitors to request a mediation letter sent to her?
Thank you question.
No, in Scotland mediation isn't a requirement of the law. You should engage a Scots solicitor to write to the mother seeking contact. If she refuses or doesn't reply your son can apply contact order at the local sheriff court. The court will assign a child welfare hearing within a matter of weeks.
Your son can get a solicitor in the area where his daughter lives by asking the Law Society of Scotland to recommend a family law solicitor there.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited time.
