Hi BD

Courts do tend to go with overwhelming recommendations but they are allowed to be challenged from both parties. If this is a review hearing coming up next, the court will ask both your positions on the recommendations and in light of them, see if any agreement can be reached. If it can't, the matter will be listed for a final hearing and you will both have an opportunity to question CAFCASS, each other and any relevant witnesses. You will then provide a closing statement to the court and the judge will make a decision.

I have several years experience supporting parents in family proceedings as a McKenzie Friend. I am, however, not a lawyer or barrister and my responses are based on my own opinions or experiences of the family court.

The hearing coming up was for an enforcement order but this is the third one as the ex hasnt turned up to the last 2 , instead she has made one allegation after another and continually breached the orders made by the judge

I would say it's looking pretty good for you then and not so great for her!

I agree with Yoda....try and keep your expectations at bay, but it's looking like the tide will turn in your favour. It's a slow process but this is often due to the judge wishing to make sure that all procedures are followed and every box ticked to avoid a future challenge/appeal.

Best of luck and please do keep us informed.

DadTalk Moderator... I'm not legally trained and my responses are my own views based on my experiences of the family court. I have plenty of common sense and can offer you emotional support and guide you to answers.
