Hello everyone. Thanks for the input, sorry I’ve been AWOL on the thread. Been stressed and irritated almost to the point that my fuse popped!

Made my visit on the May 5th to collect my girl and as expected the ex didn’t make her available. She seems to think Covid is an excuse to break the order and do just what she wants to do. Hoping she’d see sense I pointed her to this story http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/mother-tells-court-she-is-denying-ex-partner-access-to-son-over-covid-19-fears-1.4220233 but alas, it fell on deaf ears. Anyway, C79 went in on May 6th and I have my telephone hearing on June 4th. In the meantime I must remember not to second guess myself. I have a terrible habit of expecting the worst when in reality I shouldn’t.

Hat off to you Lou!! Dare I say you’re in (as far as my experience goes) a minority. A well adjusted woman with your lad at the fore.

Sorry to hear that Waunderful, it must be a tough thing to deal with. The irony of my situation is that if I showed no interest in my girl her mum with be throwing contact arrangements at me left, right and centre while moaning that I’m a rubbish dad. A very similar situation with my stepson, his dad didn’t give two hoots about him for 11 years. I took him on as my own @ 2 y/o and loved that boy unconditionally. Last year contact with him was stopped by his mum AND dad! At the CAFCASS meeting she told the officer that I had almost driven him to suicide. A total fabrication, an injustice I’ve struggled with every day since November last year. Unsurprisingly a pain I wouldn’t wish on anyone…
