Yes. The court would be very interested in such behaviour. The court also has a duty in case involving children to consider whether there has been any form of domestic abuse in the relationship - this is set out in something called PD12J and the court must consider this is every case. I hope that this helps and please rate positive.
No I do not agree. These are factors which can show what this person is like and that he is a risk to the children.
If there is a court order in place and you stop contact then the court can seek to enforce the contact. If social services tell you to stop contact then that is clearly much better.
Well if they have concerns then I would certainly consider stopping contact. You can make an application to the court to suspend the contact. If it helps there is a very good book on this topic - I have attached the link - https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/How-Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding-resolving/147211910X
Please remember to rate positive.
That is why I would apply to suspend the order
The book would also help you
Yes. It would be helpful if you get something in writing from social services.
Please also rate positive.
I hope that answers your question. Please ask anything as necessary.
I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you.
If you make the court aware ion the non molestation order then the court would have to consider PD12J which could well be used as a reason to suspend contact.
It is the practice direction which states that if there is domestic abuse there should not be contact unless there has been a suitable risk assessment - https://www.judiciary.gov.uk/publications/president-of-family-division-circular-practice-direction-pd12j-domestic-abuse/
Yes he will.
The you need to make the application and if it helps refer the judge to PD12J. I hope that this helps and please rate positive.
Not from what you have said
I can not answer why they have not done things. I can simply answer your question which I have hopefully done for you. I hope that this helps and please rate positive.
They should. Yes. That is their role and duty.
I can see that. Its very frustrating for you. But I have given you the tools now. I would also buy the book. Please rate positive for my time.
