To cut a long story short, leaving out specific details.........
My daughter isn't allowed (at the request of childrens social services) to have unsupervised contact with my ex, this has been the case for the best part of two years, in which time, childrens services were doing supervised contact at least once a month.
They now want to pull out of supporting contact, due to funding, although they still don't recommend unsupervised contact.
The courts are reluctant to "force" anything, because they say this will set a precedent for lots of other cases, seems this is quite a common issue, obviously childrens services are extremely underfunded, or totally bloody useless, or both, CAFCASS aren't interested, which then only leaves private supervision (£120 a hour), which I'd have to pay for.
Bottomline, my ex's solicitor is now putting me under pressure to supervise contact, which is wholey inappropritate IMO, so this basically leaves my daughter having no contact with her mum.
So I am in a bit of a rock / hard place situation, anyone been in, or know of, someone in a similar position?, anyone found a soloution?
