My stepdaughter was taken into hospital last night. Her

Customer Question

My stepdaughter was taken into hospital last night. Her father is with her. He has had concerns about the way her mother cares for her which he has raised with many institutions from solicitors to social workers to nursery staff to the family court. Deaf ears - he is the father therefore insignificant. The court order he has is a contact order which confirms that he has his daughter every fortnight, returning herbtobhernkother on Sunday evening. He does not want her to go to her mother (who lives with her parents - there will be no chance for him to speak to his daughter let alone from see her and that's aside from the issue of level of care concerns he has)
Please advise what happens if he refuses to allow his daughter to leave he hospital with his ex wife. Would he be in breach of the existing court order? How quickly can an interim order be put in place?
