Hi, thank you for your question. Are there any court orders in place, if so what are the terms?
Thanks for confirming. If the father's actions have led to emotional harm towards your son then you would have reasonable grounds to restrict contact and given that there are no orders in place the father cannot enforce the previous arrangements. However, your son has a right to a continued relationship with his father and the father would be entitled to apply to the English courts for a child arrangement order and the court will decide, based on the history and facts as to whether the potential issues are welfare issues and whether contact should take place in Jersey.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
Thanks - as outlined if the father's actions have led to emotional abuse you can restrict contact arrangements and it would be for the father to apply to court for a child arrangement order to see him.
