I would require a family solicitor Assistant: Where are you?

This answer was rated:

Hi I would require a family solicitor
Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: My partner has 3 children he doesn’t see as she (their mother) dictates when or if he can see them
Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: She was him to maintain contact with her in order to see the children
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: He pays child support but financially cannot afford legal fees to fight to see them so goes long periods without seeing them

I’m in London uk

Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. The simple fact is that as both parents share parental responsibility then they both have equal rights, irrespective of whom the children live with. He should be allowed to see them - commonly it is alternate weekends and half of holidays and celebration days. He will if things can not be agreed need to make an application to court on a form C100 for a child arrangements order to spend time with the children. The majority of people make these applications without a solicitor and you can apply also for fee exemption- I have attached a link to a great book which explains the court process - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X

Happy to discuss and please rate 5 stars.
