Good morning. I will assist with your question - be aware this is an email not chat service.

are you saying that would then lead to problems with the other children?

are they likely to agree to this?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
We will explain as both of the other children have their own homes. Claire lives with us.

Sorry, not prepared to pay at this stage

Do you mean that you’re not prepared to pay for a telephone call (the offer is automatic, you can always decline) or do you mean that you don’t want to continue at all?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Hi I'm not prepared to pay the £44. Can we still continue with email.
Expert:  F E Smith replied 13 days ago.

The offer of a telephone call comes out automatically. It’s optional. You can just ignore it or request it later.

We can continue on here.

There was nothing to stop you doing what you are proposing but I don’t know exactly what your query is because you haven’t asked a question. If you are anticipating a problem with it, then just post up and I will deal with that for you.
