Thank you for your enquiry and I am sorry to hear about the situation. The first piece of advice I would give you would be to get representation. If you do not have the means to pay for this then you will want to explore potential for legal aid, if that is not possible then go online and look at MacKenzie friends they can help free of charge. Until you have a copy of the report form the expert then don't panic yourself too much as you don't know what it is going to say. It is not possible for me (or any lawyer) to assume what the judge is going to do, however if the report suggests that you are the issue, but there has been no safeguarding concerns etc with the child up until this point then they aren to going to consider moving the child to the father on a full time basis. What is likely to happen is that if they deem there has been alienation is to ensure that there is a build up of a relationship between the child and the father. They will likely order that contact take place regularly for this to happen. You will be allowed to put all of your points across to the court for consideration including if you don't agree with the report which has been put forward. The main thing you have to keep in mind at all time is the the court are only interested in what is best for the child, and if they feel it is best for the child to remain with you as they will also have time with the father then that is what they will look to do. In order to consider any kind of relocation for the child (move residence to the father) there would have to be a very long history and over riding reason for this. However, as I said initially you should do what you can to seek advice and representation as soon as possible as these types of cases have many moving parts. I do sincerely ***** ***** all the best with this matter moving forward. Do remember that the court will listen to what you have to say even if you feel things seem against you and they will consider what you have to say about the matter. I hope this helps you with. the matter.
