CAO breach - apply for enforcement or a new CAO?

New Member Registered


New member here, though I've been muddling through CA+NMO proceedings since July 2022. NMO concluded with joint undertakings in 2022. CA ended with CAO in July 2023 (joint lives with 9/5 in M's favour, 50/50 holidays). 

M has breached the court order a few times to reduce my little one's contact w/ me. I'm concerned that she's about to withhold her from contact in the next few days. Should this occur, I'm wondering whether I ought to be applying for (a) a new CAO, (b) enforcement of existing CAO, or (c) both.

Unsure how much detail is required, though I'm unconvinced the current CAO will work long-term. The court found heavily against M re dishonesty / manipulating professionals vs me, including social services - though the court relied on the social services' report to justify the 9/5 (despite identifying that they clearly hadn't done a good job at assessing her). 

Thanks in advance for any assistance. I'm currently working on putting together a case for TOLATA / finances re this situ, too, and possibly further NMO revisiting / enforcement as she's breached that a few times too. Fun times!

If your not allowed to see child in next few days, then I suggest wait and see what happens. If you don't see child then suggest you apply for enforcement with c79. If you  have records of breaches 2-3 occasions, should help your position.
