Has anyone applied for one of these and how successful are they?

Ex agreed contact, now is refusing. Cafcass have agreed interim contact but the ex is still refusing.

I have a FHDRA hearing in a few months but I am not waiting till then.

I know I have a right and it is in the best interests of our child.

hi,

so you had the first hearing and interim contact was ordered? this will look terrible on your ex as she is refusing, when you return to next hearing. make sure to inform court and cafcass.

What I used to do while hearings were going on was to use cafcass person as an intermediary/negotiator. I would contact her and let her know what's going on and if there is any problems, and can they speak to my ex about it. It worked well. I would suggest you take this route, can also help your case if they see and hear first hand that your ex is being malicious and not co-operating.

if your ex has a solicitor, you can also write to them and ask them to remind their client that they need to comply with the court order.

First hearing is in a few months but  it was agreed in writing by Cafcass and her solicitor for contact at a contact centre during the interim.

Everything was signed and dates booked in at a centre then she did a u turn last minute and I have lost all the fee’s I paid and obviously not being able to see our child.

Cafcass support contact in the interim but there isn’t an order in place yet. I’ve spoke with the courts and they have said I can put a C2 form in for a interim contact order.

The ex’s solicitor’s do not reply to any emails or return phone call’s.

I have emailed her solicitor’s but I got nowhere I also informed Cafcass that she is being uncooperative and causing an obstruction.

They are very sneaky and I am going to refuse them to write any court papers as they manipulated what was actually said at the last hearing to what they wrote down.

I’ve self represented so far and I managed to get her NMO dismissed from court!

@dadlad must be very difficult time for you. usually an ex partners solicitor are not very kind or co-operative to the other party. it's possible your ex does not want to communicate or arrange any thing right now, so her solicitors are not messaging you. because she is not willing to make any arrangements at this time, am afraid it would be a question of waiting for the next hearing to sort these issues out. in meantime would suggest to keep yourself busy as much as possible to take your mind off this. perhaps take some trips.

Surly I can put in an interim contact order on a C2 form while I’m waiting for my first hearing?

CAFCASS are supportive of contact in the interim.

@dadlad hi, you can try that but not sure what outcome will be. court may decide to still wait for the original hearing date.

Why are solicitor’s allowed to play games with peoples emotions?

They ignore any correspondence and drag things out.

I am trying to see our child and make arrangements as recommended but they just won’t do anything.

An urgent hearing might not even be granted if applied for and that’s also money thrown away.

Would it be an idea to contact the SRA and making a formal complaint about said solicitor?

@dadlad hi, generally the SRA first expect you to make a complaint to solicitors law firm first. then wait about 4 weeks for a response. if they don't respond or its not satisfactory, then you can complain to SRA.

Ex registered our child without me to remove my parental responsibilities. 

Ex tried to use the excuse that she was advised by the health visitor and a police officer to do this?

This is obviously a made up excuse, and surly this is gross misconduct and against there policy if a professional tells someone to do that?

You can apply to the court for parental responsibility.  There a form if the mother agrees but you can also apply if she doesn’t.  There is a fee of £232 but you may be able to get help if you are on benefits.  That process is through help with fees on the www.gov.uk website.  The fee for for applying for parental responsibility is a C1 and you can find this on the same website.  You can do this yourself.  The court will probably link it with the other hearing

Thank you for the info. But I already have this in process.

I was more asking if police and health visitors are allowed to advise a parent to register a child without the father?

Surly this is some form of misconduct?
