Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Do you have a copy of the court order? If yes, please attach it using the paperclip.
(Please bear in mind this is an email service, not live chat, so responses may not be instantaneous; I am also not available for phone calls - thank you.)
Where's the third page?
Third page of the order - you have just given two pages.
I've got three pages - the other two are duplicates. It's fine though as I have the essential part which clearly states that this is a shared lives with order, so you cannot simply stop the child from going to the father's home. If you do, you will be in breach of the order and the father would be free to take enforcement proceedings against you.
Of course, if you have safeguarding concerns about the child being in the father's care, then that is a different matter and you should explain this to him, inform him you will be keeping the child at home, and advise that you will be applying to the court for a variation of the order. You would apply for that variation on a form C100, which you can find here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/734888/C100_eng_0818.pdf
Does that answer your query?
Unfortunately your court order says the child lives with both of you - bit unusual with the split that you have, it would normally be lives with the person who has most of the care and spends time with the other person on alternate weekends. Nonetheless, the court would expect you to encourage your daughter to go with her father on his weekends - if she really doesn't want to go, the father will soon work that out for himself.
I'm sorry but I don't deal with payments on the site, however the customer services number is: 0808 164 9374 I am sure that they will sort out a refund for you as you did not get a phone call and had a full answer online.
Please remember to rate positively using the five stars at the top of your page as that is how I am paid for assisting you today. Thank you.
