I’m just wondering if anyone knows anything regarding our rights as parents if our child is distressed during supervised contact? My little girl is having supervised contact with her dad.
My little girl was brought down to me 4 times in her last session as she was distressed. I could hear hear her crying all over the building. Do I have the right to just take her home rather than have to hand her back over to the supervisor to attempt taking her back in to dad each time, where she will settle for 5/10 mins and then become distressed again. She was all over the place all evening.
I presume this was monitored (or just supervised – if the latter, what were the supervisor’s comments)? Was it monitored by CAFCASS? Is there a time limit for observation in this manner? Is there an existing problem with the father’s access? How long since the child saw the father previously?
