Does it state in the order that the mother has to make a home visit to you before you can take the child there?

If there is no condition written in the order about her checking your home first, then you wouldn’t be in breach.

Perhaps you could give CAFCASS a call about it and ask them for advice, with winter here, you should be able to take your child home to spend time with her and allow her to get used to your home surroundings.

As Mojo says, unless the order states you cannot take the child home, then you are not in breach if you do that.

Try calling Cafcass if you are unsure although they are likely to say you need to seek legal advice.

Check the wording of your order thoroughly and if she is breaching the order you can always take her back to court without having to try mediation again.

If you apply to vary, mediation has to be attempted.

You could always try writing to the court and see if they will restore the matter as the order was quite recent.
