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?
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.
