I am simply disappointed with the CMS. I truly believe that the agency does need further reforming as a non-resident parent I have absolutely no rights, it's simply not ideal being a man in these situations.
Basically, since the consent order expired my lovely ex-wife has stopped me seeing the children if that was not enough, she has now decided to brainwash them against me and help is simply not at hand. I have basically lost my daughter, she just doesn't want to see me anymore despite the fact that I have done nothing wrong. My son is a bit younger but I am sure he will follow the same route.
All because my ex-wife figured it out that if I did not see my children she would get more in Child Maintenance. The system is rotten and does not promote peace it simply inflicts pain.
I feel more like a sperm donor than a father at this point in time.
This is really sad to hear, and I can see your view about CMS, but I have to say that they haven't failed you, it's your ex's attitude which has caused the problem, I was always told that the courts and other agencies can only do so much, but what ever they do it would never protect against my ex's attitude.
Are you able to re apply to court? why was an end date put on the original order?
