Topic started by MissingMySon2009
My ex left with her son six months ago. My son is now 19 months old. During the 5 contact sessions we had in August / September it was clear he has forgotten me. Some progress was made at first but then my ex started upsettign him at handover and contact broke down completely.

I have a first Directions hearing in two weeks so I need to formulate exactly what interim contact I want to ask for. I need to address that he now feels unsettled with me as my ex will be trying to use this to ask for reduced contact (and her preference is for a contact centre).

What can I say to the Court?

I truly feel for you...the child here has as yet no voice in which to state he wants a relationship with his Dad...and from my experience the childs views are/can be distorted by the PWC and compounded by having disrupted/inconsistent/irregular/wotever contact wih the NRP...I am no text book expert...merely lived the "nightmare"...I dont profess to have the answers...as hard as it is...remain factual, practical and cooperative as can be...dont let these peeps that have not been where you are patronise ..what the hell do they know...have you someone to be with you?
