My ex has not seen our Son who is of primary school age for over a year. I have a restraining order against him as he was convicted for common assault & Criminal damage against me 8 months ago. Despite his behaviour I did try & make a contact arrangement for our Son almost a year ago, but he was NOT interested at all. He has now filed an application for contact, & I’m wondering what to expect? & what would happen if I reject his application? As I do not think its in my Sons best interest to see him whilst he’s young. He witnessed his dad’s behaviour, & has now accepted life without him, & is happy. I think that my ex has only made this application to get me to have to relax the restraining order, as contact would be so complicated with the order in full force. My mental health suffered terribly after all his abuse, & I don’t want to be pulled down again.
