That's our thoughts. She will definately be difficult upon return.
Yes schools open but she's not sending them.
Tells him this and how she cannot put a date on contact as nobody knows how long covid around for. So if not sage in September she won't be sending either.
I think it will sadly be a long time before a hearing. Wish he had applied with an urgent now. However I did read they don't class enforcement (due to breach) as urgent unless safeguarding issues.
P. S I've had the technical team change my username, I got paranoid my initials and the things written would be very obvious who it was if found by the subject in the threads.
I realised it was not a private forum and comes up alot when googling questions regarding the subjects in threads.
i don't think i have come across a hearing where a judge has ordered normal contact to be re-instated in this covid-19 issue. so most likely you will be paying a court application, just for a judge to tell resident parent to allow video calls. similar happened during my variation hearing. they are happy if dad is getting video calls.
also when some schools open on June 1st, it is voluntary, so some resident parents will simply say they do not feel safe sending kids back to school, and could still use that as an excuse to prevent contact.
Tbh this is in the back of our heads. But he has to try.
Especially as our household is furloughed still, no vulnerable or high risk. Just a normal household staying home and doing alot less than their household who has a party going to work throughout.
Just hope it falls on decent ears and common sense is applied. Since the government announced they can move homes aslong as all the above, I don't understand why daddy cannot prove he is safe to be with as much as mummy.
Pray they listen and reinstate, they've said each case different. But then I know how much of a let down family law is.
We consider covid to cotinue through at least the rest of 2020, even when most things back to normal if there will ever be a normal, she will still make own rules sadly.
Thanks for sharing.
They've made it clear you can make an agreement together, to vary the order slightly to keep children safe that's called coparenting. There are also ways the children can still see a key worker mummy or daddy regularly with precautions.
Then you've got these narcisstic dictating parents that take it as an opportunity to grasp control again and do as they please!
Let's hope we get a magistrates in the uk with this attitude!!
Not taking an enforcement seriously will only give them a gateway to do it again in the future!
