My children refused to get into my car last night to go see

Customer Question

Hi, My children refused to get into my car last night to go see their Father. I tried to get them to come with me to at least talk to him but they refused. He came to our house last night and insisted they get into his car. They were angry and refused - I told them they should go but once I saw their faces I stopped telling them because they were clearly upset about something. My son is 13 (12/12/2002) and my daughter is 14 (01/10/2001). Today they are meant to get on the train after school to go to his house and I am worried they won't go and I will have to face charges
JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?
Customer: WA, my car is quite new, '15 model
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No. I don't have the finances to do so
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: This happened some years ago when the children were so frightened they refused to go. I ended up driving them down and eventually (after a long stand off) the kids got out, but were very unhappy about it
