Had access to my daughter (11), stopped.

I already have a Court order, access. What is best course of action?

Basically the mum ignores any request I make, just not replying.

I presume it will be Court,does anyone know how I get this to Court?

On my own, without using a solicitor.

Hi,

If mother is clearly breaching court order by not letting you see kids, keep a record, date of breaches, what happened. If you haven't done so, can send her polite letter reminding her to follow court order, give her few days to respond. If no response you can make an enforcement application. Have to use form c79:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-c79-application-related-to-enforcement-of-a-child-arrangement-order

You don't attend mediation if making enforcement application.  Costs £232

@bill337 Hi thanks for the advice. I would not have written the letter, but will do that now.

Maybe in an email, I think it will go to court though.

When this happened before a few years ago, a new man was on the scene.

I guess it will probably be the same this time.

If it goes to Court,I might get compensation?

 

Thanks again

Polite letter?

Would I be right in saying that the my ex would end up with a criminal record.

For breaching a Court order?

 

If that is the case,maybe mentioning this would resolve the matter.

@markm no she will not get criminal record for breaching order. I only mention polite letter because if you send any rude or threatening messages, she can use it against you and possible get a restraining order against you and make your life difficult.

If you are thinking of filing an application to enforce an Order , you need to wait until Mum has breached it at least 3 times, otherwise you are wasting your time.

@harveybdac Thanks, I decided to wait for more than three,

In case she changes course.

Would the application need to be made at nearest court to childs home.

Or where the order was issued?

@markm Court nearest to where the Children live. Just FYI It's often more successful to make an application to vary an existing order Vs enforcement. Good luck.
