Will a judge allow a 3rd party to facilitate contact if they don't know the child but is the paternal grandma with vast care sector experience and child safeguarding experience with clear dbs checks. Or does the 3rd party have to know the child
Normally it doesn't - but it really depends on your case. Why is it ordered supervised? normally when there is a re-introduction of contact they'll want to assess it, so they'll want their own SWs involved regardless.
It's my son who is going through this . It's supervised as his ex has claimed he had only met his son a handful of times and not seen him at all since July .his son is only 2 . He hasn't seen him since end of Nov when he put the cao in . SW has stated in sec 7 for a neutral venue to be arranged for contact and for a 3rd party to be agreed between themselves .
