Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist.
Please may I ask:
- how old is the child?
- when was the court order made?
- have you reported any of the bruising to police / social services?
- when was the last bruising incident? what has your child said about this?
- what contact is happening now?
Thank you for your response and for clarifying that for me.
What do you think caused the bruises? do you have any worries about the father?
PS - I need to go out but will answer upon my return
Thank you for your response.
Please accept my apologies for not being able to respond to you sooner.
I really feel for you. It is the position that children are entitled to a really good relationship with both of their parents as long as it is safe to do so. You have previously had a terrible time with the father but the previous Judge appears to consider that this was not a child protection concern.
The unexplained bruises need to be reported to police and social services. Let them investigate. If social services are concerned that the bruises are being caused because the father is not taking the child's condition seriously then they may take action themselves.
Otherwise it is a case of you making an application back to court on the basis of these bruises but you need to refer to SS and the police first.
I hope that this helps you
