Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be able to assist
What is the court order that is in place currently? And what is the father not doing?
And what has he been doing that you are not happy with?
I understand. The truth is with no formal court order in place, you would not be able to take him to court for not sticking with your agreement. He also could not do the same to you. It would be different if the court had ordered contact. Because, in those circumstance either party could go back to the court to seek enforcement orders.
What I recommend therefore is to see whether you could speak with him to see what could be formally agreed between you in relation to contact. If you are worried about the exposure to your little one, you could simply use this as a basis to refuse contact at this time. What you could propose is for contact to be done using alternative methods such as via video or telephone calls. The key thing to take away really is whilst you could not refuse contact forever, certainly during this time if you are worried you could refuse physical contact until circumstances change.
Hope I clarified things for you. Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance.
