Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good evening and thank you for requesting help with your legal issue, I am happy to assist. The moderators alerted me to your request for help. I am a family law barrister and will be able to assist you.
I will not be able to respond in full this evening, as I have already finished work for the day. I hope that you don't mind waiting for a response until the morning, when you will have my full attention.
Please note that our discussions on this site are for general information purposes and do not create an lawyer-client relationship. It is always recommended that you consult with a local solicitor for specific legal information.
Thanks for your understanding, Peter
Happy to assist. I think we covered most of this already. You do have a duty to keep your children safe and if the mother is in breach of the promise not to chastise the children, then you have two options - you either suspend contact or raise the issue directly with the mother asking for a further commitment that this will not happen again or you would have to consider suspending contact.
In the meantime, you can also report the allegation to social services.
If your child makes further disclosures at school then they will also report the concerns and this time the case probably won't be closed straight away as there aren't ongoing proceedings.
I hope that this helps clarify matters for you?
Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please do let me know if you have any additional questions in the future. I am also happy to answer any new questions on other topics that you may have, you can request me by putting “for PLCLEGAL” at the start of the new thread. Best wishes, Peter
