I want to hear your thoughts on my position.

Hey dads,

I need some assurance and help.

Basically my wife and I are going through divorce. She was abusive, and was arrested for domestic abuse in January. I dropped charges in February.


i had my daughter for 7 overnight stays from January to April. The courts then made it shared care of 4 nights to me and 3 to her.


Cafcass are doing their section 7 report and she is wanting 7 overnight days and she is claiming I am abusive and I am not a good parent, and throwing child neglect towards me.


if Cafcass buy her lies (looks like they are) I need some fellow dad asssurance. Can I really lose shared care? I have 4 days now. I can’t go from 7 days to 0 can I?


I am innocent, but my wife is very manipulative and I am not the best to defend myself. 

would I lose shared care based on her lies?


section 7 report is due on 20th june

I think it's unlikely your contact will be removed. If they think 7 nights with each parent is good for child, they might order it.

I know this is a tough situation, but remember, you are not alone in this! Keep being the caring dad you've been. Cafcass will get to the truth, so stay positive and stay focus to your daughters well-being. Lean on support network, and don't let the lies bring you down. You've got this 🤜🤛
