l have applied for contact with my two children who are 11 n 15. cafecass have made a full report on wishes and feelings and CAFCASS have recommended that indirect contact continue for another four months l have not seen them for 18months and the children have said that they dont want to see me yet and they would like to keep in touch through letters but have not replied any of my two letters between april and june to date they havent replied and l dont know whether the mother is influencing them because we dont talk at all l dont know where she lives with my kids and she wont accept any sensible offer. l am self rep because there is not much money to fight for what statement can l make as we have a review hearing tomorow
I was told by the judge at my first hearing that my 15 year old was free to choose what they wanted to do. My 10 year old I have no idea but am being informed he has some rights to choose.
My ex has indirect contact, so far sending one package of junk and no letter. The children ignored it.
All I can advise is you state your case that you understand the childrens feelings but you would like for them to send a response even if it only a copy of school report or recent photos.
