If you already have a court order stating the terms of your contact with your child, then it is possible to go back to court and ask the courts to remedy the situation. Courts are able to sanction parents who don’t obey their orders. This can involve financial compensation, imprisonment and even an order stating that the child goes to live with the other parent.
If you do not have a court order, you still have options available to you. You could try processes such as collaborative law or mediation to resolve the issue or ask your solicitor to talk to the other parent (or their solicitor) to try to resolve the situation for you. If none of this works, you can go to court. If you haven’t been allowed to see your child, the court will look upon you favourably, as long as the other parent hasn’t got a good reason for denying you contact, for example, for the child’s welfare.
Austin Kemp specialise in cases where parents are stopped from seeing their children. Whether there has been a previous court order or not, we can advise you what steps to take in order to resume contact with your child.
