Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. Have there been any hearings as yet? What reason does the child give for not wanting to see the father?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
After the FFH, it is likely the court will want a s7 welfare report so that they can speak to the 13 year old directly. Whilst his views will be interesting to the court, they will not be determinative - the court will decide whether or not he should see his father or have other contact with him, and how often. So his wishes and feelings will be taken into consideration, but they are not going to be the only thing the court looks at.
