With respect, I think sleepybird knows who it is about,as she and her partner were the ones who applied for the enforcement, and it is very very frustrating for all involved when a parent is being vendictive and blocking contact!

Never really understood this...

If RP got run over by a bus, what would happen? How would the NRP be given contact? Slowly? In baby steps? or would they be given the child(ren) and become the RP.

Where has common sense gone?

Totally understand where your coming from khan, and agree, but when my stbxh was going through the courts over his eldest daughter there were several questions about her mothers mental health and welfare concerns over the child and he was told not to pursue it as the child would go into foster care before she would go to him. His ex had refused contact for over a year and made it difficult and when these issues were raised contact had resumed but on a sporadic basis so even his own solicitor advised that as she didnt know her dad well, she would be put into foster care should the situation need it.

I do think small steps should be taken when a child is distressed, but i think in situations such as these the RP needs to just walk away. We think nothing of walking away when our child is upset and we are dropping them off at school, so why do some RP''s refuse to do this when they are handing their child over to their other parent? Hug your child, give them a kiss and tell you love them and then leave. It probably wont even take 5 minutes to calm them down!!

The small steps thing was over and done with ages ago, overnight contact has been taking place for a year now and then all of a sudden were bk to the small steps thing for the reason that sons mother doesn''t feel comfortable letting him have contact and a judge agrees to this also

There is no justice in this country and a contact order isn''t worth the piece of paper its written on!!!!!!!

In my case they would go to my mother and good luck to the ex going up against her lawyers.

I stand corrected if I am wrong here, but if there is a shared residence order in place and one of the parents dies, the other parent gets automatic residence of the children.
