Hi All,

Court made interim contact order so I can contact my daughter every week at contact centre. But my wife went overseas with my daughter without informing me or court and I have a missing contact from last 3 weeks. On last contact my xtb phoned and mislead the lady at contact centre that she is unwell so cant bring the daughter for contact.

Last week I applied for enforcement with penal notice to be attached to contact order and costs as well and there is hearing this thursday (CAFCASS day).

I dont know whether judge will add penal notice to contact or not. How can I make sure that judge shud attach penal notice? Even if Judge attach the penal notice, does it have any weight in practical terms. Please advice whether enforcement was a good move or not? What else I can do to make sure my xtb dont break the contact order without any reasonable reason.
