Hello, my name is*****’ve been asked to look at this for you, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I will look over this and come back to you shortly with a response.
Obviously the first thing to say is that the rules are relaxing a little, and the situation is changing fairly quickly.
Is your daughter particularly vulnerable to covid-19, being in a high risk group? Are you?
Do you have a contact order in place or is this just arranged between you?
Have you expressed your concerns to him?
OK, thanks for confirming.
The issue is that a lot of the guidance has been just that - guidance.
With no court order in place there's no powers to dictate terms of or withhold contact really.
If you were concerned that she was at immediate risk of harm you could stop contact. If this is a more long term issue about both adhering to the same safety protocols with your daughter then mediation and ultimately court will be the arena to decide the issue.
Where you can't reach agreement yourselves, formal steps such as mediation and/or a court order are needed.
I hope that clarifies things as they stand currently?
