Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm:
-Are you seeking contact arrangements for yourself or trying to put them in place?
-Are there any court orders in place, if so what are the terms?
Thanks for confirming. If she refuses to engage in the proposed arrangements he would need to consider applying to court for a child arrangement order - at this time he will have no enforcement options and will require a court order to enforce any arrangements.
He should formally write to her with the proposals and inform her if she does not engage in the proposals that he will pursue an application to court. This can be done under Form C100 together with a £215 court fee to the child's local family court for a child arrangement order and the court can make a decision regarding the matter. For your information the Court will take into consideration the following when making a decision regarding the application:1. The wishes and feelings of the child concerned2. The child’s physical, emotional and educational needs3. The likely effect on the child if circumstances changed as a result of the courts decision4. The child’s age, sex, backgrounds and any other characteristics which will be relevant to the court’s decision5. Any harm the child has suffered or may be at risk of suffering6. Capability of the child’s parents (or any other person the courts find relevant) at meeting the child’s needs7. The powers available to the court in the given proceedingsI hope this assists you.
