Hi How Can I help?
I have read your question and respond shortly-thank you
Hi How can I help?
How many children do you have and what are your current contact arrangements?
Sorry are you still there?
Are you married?
Are you looking to apply for Divorce?
Or contact arrangements for your child
Are you free to talk?
Is the house mortgage or rented and in joint names?
Right - if you and your partner are unable to agree current contact arrangements, I would suggest that you seek mediation first with a mediator. If this fails or you cannot agree, you can apply for a Child Arrangements Order to your nearest family court. The court fee is £215.
If he being abusive and there is threat to you and your child you can apply to the court for a Non-Molestation Order against your partner to protect you and your child.
In respect of the COA - Cafcass will be involved and will be able to assist the court as to whom the child should live, whether contact should be shared etc.
Are you free to talk this may be better?
The court can also decide if you apply for a Occupation Order who should and should not live in the property. You may qualify for legal aid depending if you are on low income/savings
If you have any other questions, please do let me know.
