Thank you for your response.
You are right - there are no restrictions now. If the court had had a hearing without you present, ay because your partner had aid there were concerns of a child protection nature in relation to you, then you would have still been provided with a court order and you havent been.
If he keeps threatening to leave with your daughter and you are genuinely concerned that he will do this, given that you have always been her main carer and you have concerns about this mental health then you really should be considering applying for a prohibited steps order .
You can make usch an application without legal representation. This is actually quie common now given the cut backs in legal aid.
Complete this form:
Asking for a prohibited steps order - to prevent him from removing your daughter. Also ask for a Child Arrangements Order for your daughter to live with you and decide what time is safe for her to spend with her father.
Tick the exemption from mediation on the basis of urgency.
Detail the threats that he made to remove today and all the other times he has said this and how you believe he will and the concerns you have about his mental health and how the police have had to become involved.
Call your local family court on Monday and tell them you have an urgent case and want to be heard by a Judge asap.
There is a court fee of £215 but you may be eligible for a reduction or remission given your financial means.
You need to act quickly so that you dont lose the urgency in relation to the threats he has made to remove your daughter.
The court may give you an order on the basis of your application and hearing you alone first (ex parte) or arrange a hearing for you both to attend in a few days. Either way the court will want to maintain the consistency for your daughter of you being the main carer if that has always been the position.
