Hi All

CAFCASS were involved in my case about a year ago, they saw ma and my children briefly, did a S7 report, thier report concluded that contact between my 2 boys and thier father should be "carefully managed".

He was instructed to do 4 months indirect contact (which he failed to do).

He was directed again to do 4 months indirect contact (this time he did), followed by 6 months in a ''supported'' contact centre. (12 sessions fortnightly.)

This has now ended and my case is to be reviewed in a few weeks but my CAFCASS officer is off sick.

My solicitor has always said that he will end up with contact because there are worse cases/they usually go with CAFCASS decisions.

I cant really afford further legal representation, i was going to discuss with cafcass a way my children could see thier dad in a manageable/gradual way (if it was inevitable this was going to happen anyway!)

I have since learned that the childrens dad has since beat up his new girlfriend, i think the police are aware but dont think his partner took it further.

Am i within my rights to get cafcass to do another report, i.e. contact the relevant bodies to see if any further information has come to light??? thanks
