The situation is thus:

Parent A and Parent B have a shared residence order, with defined periods of contact written into it.

Parent A often doesn''t return the child to Parent B on the stated day, often days later, and Parent B has no idea where the child is - phone contact is not an option as parent A switches phone off and confiscates child''s phone.

Currently, child was due to be returned on Saturday (last weekend), but is still with Parent A, who is incommunicado, and Parent B has no idea of where child is, or when/if he will be returned.

What can parent B do to ensure that a) child is safe, and b] to have child returned?

Parent A is a chancer trying to push the boundaries a little. Parent B seems to have been someone allowing more child contact that was agreed. Something IMHO which is admirable.

I would suggest B write to A to explain the situation and address the issue of "boundaries" and communications.

Confiscation of the childs phone is a pure p155-take. It belongs to the child and it should remain with them at all times.

Really vexes me when I see some men take the p155 and men like me don''t get enough contact. Parent A has no b100dy clue how lucky he is.

I think it''s irrelevant what the schedule says as the problem is that parent A isn''t sticking to it.

Has parent B kept a log of the times the child has not been returned on time and how many days late back parent A is. This just smacks of parent A trying to assert control and basically laughing at the court order.

If it were me it would be a case of complile a list of breaches and back to court we go with a penal order attached and a proposed ''suspended contact order'' that Khan brought to attention, in place too.

Parent B should go round Parents A house and get the kid back in person.
And tell Parent A to stop fecking around.
