Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. Who has the SGO? What are they doing to breach the order? Who are you in relation to the child?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
And did the SGO state that contact should be montly, or was this an agreement made between you and the guardian?
Do you have a copy of the order that you can attach?
Is it in a court order or not?
May I see the order please?
If the contact was ordered by the court, then the guardian is in breach of the order if they are stopping or preventing contact and you can apply for enforcement of the order by using form C79 to apply for the order to be enforced. Cost is £155, but if you're on a low income/benefits check to see if you are eligible for fee remission.
If the contact was merely agreed between the guardian, you and social services it is not enforceable in the courts, but I would suggest you contact the social worker to discuss the situation with them and see if contact can be reinstated.
I trust that answers your query. If not, please upload the order as requested earlier and I will see what further guidance I can provide.
