Hi, welcome to JA, I amCustomerone of legal experts here. My goal is to provide you with the best experience possible and answer any questions which you may have about your current situation. I may not respond immediately, this is because I may need a few minutes to read what you shared above, type and respond to you. Feel free to ask any follow up questions as needed until you are satisfied.
Thanks for your patience and enquiry.
I am sorry to here what your ex partner has done. If there has been application by him the court has no option but to issue the summons to you. So, the fact that the summons has been issued does not mean definitively that your son will be taken. In circumstances such as these therefore I recommend that you respond to any allegation that has been made by him. Stating specifically whether they are false. It is likely that when you go to court for the first time that the court will request for CAFCASS to come out and do an assessment of you and your son in relation to the allegations.
I would not worry too much if the allegations are false.
Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
The fact that you are doing something proactively with respect to the allegation would go to your credit. However these are serious allegations which may go against you if proven. However, it will be on you to demonstrate that you are currently working on the problem and you pose no risk to your son. As he is*****is likely to want to hear from him with respect to how he feels about you and continuing to reside with you.
