Hello my name is*****'ll just review this for you.
OK. Cafcass have to look at risk of harm to children in general when compiling the section 7 reports.
But if the order was drafted in a misleading way, resulting in the report not focussing on the key issue, then you can ask for this to be re-drafted and an addendum to the report can be ordered if it has already been completed.
Did the magistrates give facts and reasons alongside the order?
Have you drawn this to the attention of Cafcass?
Has the report been completed yet or is the author still writing it up?
OK. Then you need to ask Cafcass to produce an addendum report to address this issue and raise it with the court that the applicant's solicitor did not include this in the court order as requested.
I hope this assists.
No, there's no need - it's in the facts and reasons so clearly was something the court had raised and noted as a live issue in the proceedings.
It's quite underhand of the solicitor to have not put this in the court order, to be honest.
Obviously you as a litigant in person would have had sight of the order but you weren't to know that it had to be included.
I hope this clarifies the point.
If you do have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
Yes the court file should have a copy of this.
I think the court will also want to know what Cafcass' views are on the issue of emotional harm too, regardless.
