    Hi,

    New here and new to being a lone parent and my feet haven’t hit the ground yet.

    I’m not sure where to turn but I’m looking for some sort of community to be in contact with others in a similar situation to me.

    My separation was sudden and unexpected, resulting from an arrest and subsequent charge for offences involving IIOC.

    LA have been involved and are working with me to ensure my child’s safety (I’m working very closely with them and am extremely grateful for their support).

    Unfortunately, my child knows and understands the reason for our separation and why they are having no-contact with him which means I have so many concerns for over the next few years with questions and emotions that I’m sure will be a rollercoaster.

    Am just nearing the end of welfare proceedings in which the LA (and myself) are requesting to continue the no-contact order and I just want to be able to talk to others who have been in a similar situation.

    Is there anything out there?
