My ex wife has prevented my access to our 7 year old for 11 weeks. Last week we met for the first time since lockdown but on the agreement I can’t hug our daughter. I have been in isolation all the lockdown and have had no symptoms but I can’t find anything that says whether I can hug my daughter or not. The ex won’t budge unless she sees evidence that I can hug our daughter. Does anyone know the ruling on this ?
All I know is that legislation states that a child under the age of 18 can switch between homes. If contact arrangements were organised through a court then contact should not have stopped so you could hug your daughter unless the mother or someone is vulnerable which lives with them.
However, if arrangements are not made through court I suppose she can do what she wants. However, she may have reason not wanting you to hug her but you need to ask her this.
