Reply To: Child not wanting contact
Can I just say …stay away from court, once they put a plan in place you have very little flexibility. They will also NOT listen to the wishes and feelings of the children even if there are safeguarding concerns. At 10 she will be made to go to her fathers with reasonable force as I’ve just had set by court for my 12year old son. He witnessed domestic violence and suffers from verbal abuse from his father and they still say this is no reason not to have contact.
In my experience (7 years of this) she may dip in and out of contact and it’s really up to him to be accepting of this and to work hard to change it.
i wish you the best of luck
