It is normal for a child to regress into earlier behaviours like bed wetting, sucking thumb, wanting a dummy etc when going through separation as children go through separation anxiety so talk to him with some age appropriate books videos etc say you and his dad both love him still but cant be together. Do the kids see their at all7 February 2018 at 2:01 am #7471
Have you tried mediation at all if you are on benefits or low income can get it funded usually and if you want to go back to court they usually ask for you to have tried mediation
Is there any social services involvement if so talk to them about your concerns or if you have a health visitor or support worker etc
Hope this helps7 February 2018 at 1:48 am #7468
Sorry you and your partner have been through all this with his ex. There are many things you can do to find her. If you have a solicitor ask them to do a disclosure order for the whereabouts of the child, then a child arrangements order to ask for contact/joint custody. The court may ask you to do mediation but if the mediator can not find the mother they can sign him off by filling in a form saying that mediation is unsuitable in this case. I would get into court as quickly as you can as ss or police wont be much help in my experience even if there are any safe guarding issues. Also look at the Cafcass website lots of advice on there including the Parenting Plan which the court also likes so i suggest him looking at that and anything else to show he is doing everything he can.
Good luck. Hope everything works out for you
