Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

Yes, she has breached the order. This is a court order. It doesn't depend on whether his son wishes to come and anyway five year old children don't say they don't want to see their father without being prompted.

The order is to make him available for contact. She failed to do so because she got him to say he didn't want to come.

Just take her back to court for breach. She will get the message in due course. This is just the usual nonsense. She will have been online on one of these mumsnet sites and spoken to other unemployed women who have suggested this. She will work out that it will blow up in her face in due course. The court won't put up with this.

If I give you an example it might make sense. This child probably doesn't want to go to the dentist either. If she were a good parent she wouldn't let him make a decision of that kind. Its a similar principle.

Can I clarify anything for you?
