How long is the father likely to be on remand?
How old are the other children?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Court date is in beginning February. Two children aged 7 and 12
The law says that children are entitled to contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessary.
There is no absolute rule that children should not visit parents in prison - but the only way that the father can force the issue is by making an applictaion to the court - which is unlikely to be swift.
However the father is still entitled to make the applictaion - even on remand
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask i fyou need further details
