Court orders and assigned parental course

Hello

Finally my case moving forward after loosing my child for 4 years ,somewhere between fending false allegation and loosing both parents.

I have court order to do Icfa (improving child and family arrangement) course as well as parenting plan program which was proposed to judge by cafcass officer assigned to my case.

I have tried to sign for the course but when contacting them they don't pick up calls. When finally I'm able talking with them, they don't know anything about it then sending me back between cafcass and court for my referral.
I lost so much time going back and forth for over a month now without any results.

the latest news reviled about  new type of c19 doesn't help either with Christmas and New year followed up , this only complicated everything.

 

 

My question is :
After court order was made and sent to all parties, cafcass officer shouldn't send information to parties upon receiving such referrals?( did anybody had similar issues and how did you resolve it)
how come after almost one and half a month nobody knows anything (course provider and cafcass) nor trying to contact me about the issue.( is this normal or I'm naive that they will keep in touch)

does anybody was referred by judge to do parental plan program ( can you tell me your experience? give some info ) 

may thanks for all the answers

 

Tony

hi,

have no experience of this, but if nothing is moving forward then you could put in a complaint to Cafcass:

@bill337 

thanks 

I spoke to course providers. 

They said as this is assigned by court order and cafcass and it's not privately. My family court advisor is responsible for it but I'm not sure as they trying to dodge it and shift responsibility on me.

All I know the final reports of completed programs should be sent by providers to court and cafcass then cafcass supposed to make separated report for the next hearing.

now I'm stuck , I think someone intentionally disinform me to delay the process to restore contact with my child.

ok, Can you carefully check your court papers/cafcass documents and see what it states about taking the course and who is responsible for arranging and paying for it? I remember when I was going through court, Cafcass recommended myself and ex to sit a Separated Parents programme. I had to chase them to refer it for me and have it arranged. As they referred me for the course, it was free of charge.

I think you should put in a complaint to Cafcass using that link I posted above, that you need an answer as soon as possible, as this is not fair on the child to be absent from a parent for a long period of time like this. did you have a lawyer representing you, are they able to offer advice on your situation?

thanks for insight of your situation. It's very helpful as 
this is exactly what's  happening in my case.
The problem is they don't tell you when there's an issue and make u guess 

Today FCA contacted me and confirmed they'll send referral. 
I hope there won't be any more issues or delays. Already that extra month court gave us gone to waste.

Now It's just Positive parenting program left and I'm back on tack

YES, hopefully.

Now I can go onto next one,  just need to sort out TRIPLE P in the meantime.
Still need to chase right people . It could be nice if someone gave more info instead just tell you to do it.
That could help to focus to accomplish requirements rather than blindly search for solutions. 👍
