Hi Claire, when care order is made an I apply discharge order

Customer Question

Hi Claire, when care order is made an I apply discharge order after six months?

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi Asma
Six months would be a little early unless you can show that all the problems are now resolved and that you are strong and able to cope again
A year would be a more realistic aim
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
A year is a long time why might you think it might take a year.

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
It is going to take six months or more for the Criminal issues to clear - you will then need some time to sort matters out and recover from what will have been a long and awful year
Hence the 12 months looks more realistic and shows that you understand the problems that you face
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Claire A year is more realistic. I am hoping I can keep the house until the criminal matter resolved so I can work,with the local authority that I have made significant changes. Relationship with husband is finished and I have enhanced more on the parenting programmes. So I am more physically and mentally prepared for taking role looking after all or some of my children in the near future.

The police and cps changed my charge to only child cruelty.
It's bit more minor then the one they initially charged me with.

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi Asma
It is good to see you looking forward - that is an excellent start to your plans
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Claire, I just feel really disheartened that tha police and cps charged me two weeks before the final hearing. I think this is a conspiracy that if they did charge me the first day I got arrested the criminal matter would have concluded by now. Wasted six months of my time.

It's just unfair to me and welfare of the children.

What does it mean "child cruelty 1"

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi Asma
I agree that the delay was unacceptable.
Child Cruelty is a very wide allegation - you can read more here

Many thanks for your advice and support throught out this process. You have been extremly kind patient wity me. I have been so many hurdles in my life. Putting up with long standing domestic violence in the relationship, also caring for my children some with special needs. Dealing with the local authorities concerns for over 11years. Now I have lost my children due to allegation against me. How much can a lady like me in the Asian community can take all this.

Hi Claire
The four children are in long term care and two placement order

I have lost everything I can't even appeal

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi Asma
You cannot appeal as you agreed to the orders being made BUT that does NOT mean that all is lost.
We spoke about giving yourself a year - to get the criminal matter out of the way and to make yourself strong - then you can apply for the return of the children
It is unlikely that an adoption placement will have been found before then - so there is no need to panic about that

What is process of adoption? As far as I know they have six months to search then if they can't find suitable adopters then the two children might be revert to long term.

The judge had said that both parents failed to take care of the children. We put our own needs before them, we are not good enough to look after. She is blaming the disabilities of the children is the cause of the volatile relationship between both parents.

I am also unfit mother who could not safeguard any of the children from harm. She thinks adoption would be in the best interest of the two boys if I try to apply in the future the younger children would be damaged emotionally how the other four have become.
The Judge was very cynical of me.

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
I am sorry that you had such a bad time from the Judge
The Local Authority will now have to try and match the children with potential adopters - which may not be possible - and will certainly take many months

Thank you Claire. I am very unfortunate person my life as always been a struggle. Every body I associated in my life have abused me, hurt me and let me down. I don't deserve to live on this world. I am better off dead.
Atleast I will free from my pain and hardship on this injustice world.
I can't trust any body who will fight my corner or look after me when I am despair. Every body I associate is just care about their own selfish needs.

All my children have been separated from one and another just because of the LA and court decision I will never get my children back together how we were before never.

Hi Asma

Hi Claire I have contacted PAIN because they are based in different part of the country they don't cover in the westmidlands.

Nobody can win with the LA and family court they never think how all this impact on the parents it's all for the children's best interest not parents. We have children so they can remove them of parents like me who has suffered all this abuse from relationship and now the LA and family court had abused me emotionally and mentally destroyed my life for good.
They do not realise what so ever my feelings and views. They play GOD I only wanted best for my children and this is the slap in the face I get from LA and family court.

The court and LA made me childless and barren.

Hi Claire, I have had conatct with the children's father that my older son is still stating that he had inflicted the injuries to his brother to the contact worker.
I still don't understand why have I been charged with the assault if he still stating he injured him. And if my son says that in crown court what other evidence do they have against me?

They will have to take his statement and hopefully I will be found guilty.

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
Why are you in contact with your ex?
That will sink and application you make in a years time.
They have not charged you with the assault anyway - just Child Cruelty
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
From the information I have from my solicitor is I have been charged with the wilful assault charge this fits in the child cruelty charge.

We don't have regular contact but he informs how the children are doing specially the older boy. He is not happy about he can't come home because of the situation with his younger brother and other issues with in the family dynamic.
Can child cruelty be a variety of things then?

Thank you

Hi, what ifthe police and cps be really ignorant and they decide to pull another stunt that they charge me with somthing else. They are dead against me they will try their upmost to convict me with something. They did a very good job of charging me just before the final hearing and pressure from JR application.

I have lost my trust with them. If they don't find me not gulity for the assault they will think of somthing else to charge me with.
They are very critical of me from day one.

I am sorry but the Placement Order is standard given the age of the children
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Claire,
I asked the solicitor wether I can have copies of the care order, threshold document, placement orders, and the transcript of judgement given the reason why placement order been given. So the adcovate from justice for families can go through the papers. Wether there is chance of appeal. It is worth a try for her to see if any appeal can be done.

That's true all these paper work take time. I am so excited to see my two youngest boys tommorow. I hope I can hold everything together. I will let you know how I went. I hope my children can bear the separation and be strong for me and themselves. That is only positive outcome I can get throughout these proceedings is to have some contact with my two boys and my older daughter. I will show how good mom I can be to my children. These are small steps hopefully it will be in the right way.

I will love and cuddle them the contact workers will be surprised.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Claire, I don't think they will be confused they will be more like when can they come home. It's so upsetting for them because I will start bonding with them they will be later adopted to new family it will break their little hearts thats if they do find suitable family They have full knowledge who there birth parents are by now. The boys ages are 5 and 3and a half. They know their siblings they all have a bond. I kept them all together until they separated from each other in March.
I was the person who held everybody together and now it's my fault that they have fallen apart. I should have protected them and i dont know how am I going to rebuild it will take long time.

I wanted best for them and be happy with me and their brothers and sisters living together

Hi Claire, I didn't see the children today I drove all the way to the contact centre waited for 45 minutes then I was told contact was cancelled for my older daughter and the contact for the two boys is tomorrow.
I was told by the children's social worker last week and this week it would be with the two boys today. The contact coordinator spoke to the social worker this morning about the dates then the social worker said to the coordinator that she willl make contact with me and say today's contact been canceled. I did not get any phone calls or anything from the social worker. When I tried to talk to her from the contact centre I was told she can't come to the phone she's busy.
It's so disgusting and unprofessional of her to do this to me. I was all excited to see atleast some of the children then I was let down. What a wasted journey.
I am going to make a formal complaint about the social worker.
Social workers some are such cruel people.

Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will make a formal complaint about the whole Walsall Local Authoririty in the next week or two. How the local authority for the last 12 years of their involvement how they incompetently they have treated me and my children.
They suddenly jumped in when another child injured another sibling and got me arrested for child cruelty charge. If they had high level of concerns about in the past of volatile relationship between me and ex husband why didn't they remove the children earlier. Why did they intervene now.

All this is making feel disgusted about the local authority lack of unprofessionalism and working against the parents not with parents.
They always I was a victim of DV but they did help to get rid of him or remove me or my children to another accommodation without him knowing where we live now I would have been with all my children with the right support.

Hi Claire, Just a question because the court made the bail for me to be remanded living and sleeping at my home address not to have contact with the three children who potential witnesses, to have supervised contact with the two children and my daughter.
That is all on the court bail condition. The question is can my landlord force me and rehouse me if the court had ordered for me to remain in my house until the outcome of the criminal proceedings?
Does that make sense?

Hi Claire, I don't understand that the firm that dealt with care proceedings they always ask for bank statements from me all the time I initially have information of the income I recieve and bank statement they want the information for march,April,may. I just recently gave a statement on regard to the judicial review application. The solicitor don't keep copies for thier records they always send to legal aid.

It does not make sense in other firms they don't ask for bank statement just income details.

Hi Claire I already gave the statement from day one why do they keep on asking for more. It's a night mare they could not help me with the children their only concern for them to get paid form the legal aid agency.

I have just been extremely unlucky in all this. It's just utter unluck I am going through. I don't want to give up but all this court and hearing is making me exhausted and things are not going as I want. The children are in care so the LA and court do not need to worry about that. It's me nobody is bothered about my feeling and safety in all this.

I am concerned I will eventually hit rock bottom. The court and LA are not bothered about vulnerable parents like me with no support and guidance from nobody.

It hard to keep all together since I saw my boys I am really struggling to cope. I am living but I am just existing that all I am. I have lost my chance to be a mother to my children.

Hi Claire, I have appointment with my psychiatrist this afternoon I will have to explain to her how all this is making feel. Also I spoke to the solicitor the criminal matter she is saying it will take eight weeks for all paper, statements, interviews, video taped of the children.
Also she is saying that the CPS are in a big mess I am not sure what she means by that.
If paper work do not get together by the case managment hearing then the still hearing will still have to go ahead.

I am just so frustrated with all the waiting.

Hi Claire, the social worker made an accusation that is apparently went to my child's School and said to the teacher that I am saber's mom and my name is XXXXX XXXXX And I had a Spanish accent. The sw ia accusing of going into my son school. Which is untrue. She asked where I was today I said I was in town and my friends house she would not believe me what so ever. She asked what is my friends name i said I have to ask permission to the friend before I give her details. The social worker would not believe I was at my friends she says what i am saying is not credible.

So I called my friend she said to give her name and number I called the social worker the receptionist said she can't answer the phone then I left her the message of my friends details to pass on the sw. But my friend did not get a call from the sw. The sw made my stress levels really high.

I wasn't being awkward but the sw was not prepared to I've me the information about which school,teacher the social worker had spoken to. To watch on CCTV who had impersonated me. I have informed the police but they that social services need to investigate them selves first.
What a nite mare I am going through I am being treated like a criminal by social. Services.

Hi Claire,
Just come back home enjoyed myself. Back to the stress mode. I have a formal complaint about the social worker I requested the manager to respond back by five days. The top people from the local authority will not be happy about the complaint I have made but they will need to respond.

Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
Well done?
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Claire, I have dealt with the local authority for almost 12 years I have met with so many managers, and social workers in my time. But I have never experienced the particular social worker that the children have who is extremely unprofessional and undermines my parenting capacity. She has no idea of my parenting skills and knowledge. I feel she is a bully and put parents down and very unapproachable. I have explained to her manager about her attitude towards me but the manager does not take any notice so I had no choice is to complain to the top people of children's services.
They should train social workers to work with parents with them not against them. If parents were uncooperative then I can understand last resort is court arena.
There is somebody in the LA who does not like me at all that is why LA are being too harsh with me.

Hi
I hope your complaint helps change this
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Me too. I will not give up my rights I am not willing to sit and accept the injustice to me and my children. I don't think the
LA did not expect me to keep on complaining. How will I be happy with that my children can't come home to my care because of the social worker evidence against me that I have emotionally and physically harmed them. I am going to prove to them that she is in the wrong and she has manipulated and intimidated the system and the court.
I will still keep fighting and not them put me down. It's not a crime is it to complain about a service which is unhelpful towards innocent and vulnerable parent like me.

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
Hi
I think you are entitled to challenge some of what has happened - but you do need to be careful to concentrate on the areas where they have clearly gone beyond what is reasonable
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That is very true. I am trying my best with my support worker to exactly found out what is the local authorities issues are and what they have got against that is so unreasonable to them that I can't even have an opportunity to have an observation assessment with some of the children atleast.

Just because I have now been charged I have not been convicted yet and I am hoping I will found not guilty of the allegation against me.

But the LA are not acknowledging that I has changed I have enhanced my parenting skills. And I won't to be given another chance once the criminal matter has been concluded if I am found not gulity. The social worker s looking at any way and digs to crack me up and I am not going to let her beat me.
Truth will prevail I know what the truth s and I am going to stick with the truth.
Thank you for all your support and guidance in all this. I hope I do make sense when I am emailing and asking questions to you. I hope y own solicitor be much more clear and honest with than just mislead me.

The barrister must of left it in her life and passed the information to my solicitor she said on the 9th judgment hearing that she will refer to them. She is in and out of court that is why she is not looking into this. I have spoken to her associate secretary she will pass the message to the solicitor but I did stress that I need these statements ASAP

Hi
Sadly there is nothing more that you can do until she finds them
Claire

Hi Claire, Yes that's all I can do. The nurse met with me today she will come to see me again on Saturday then the doctor will check me how I'm doing every couple of days.
The home treatment team have now been on board the nurse said not to worry they are always there for me when I am in crisis.

It is atleast a good support for this critical time of my life. I am surprised the social worker has not made any contact with me or my friend Which is good, the complaint will also hopefully will change things.
Hopefully the support worker will be there to advice me. The trip yesterday had helped me a bit.

Asma

HI
I am really pleased that you are now getting some proper support
Claire
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Claire, I have no choice is to wait for the court papers to arrive by the solicitor this will take time. When the bundles arrive then I will check if the children's statement is in the bundle.

Then I will write to the solicitor and explain why I need the statement.
If I annoy them it will have an impact on the criminal case.
It's so frustrating for me. Now the family matter has finished the legal aid will no longer pay them that is why maybe I am not getting a reply from them.

Hi Claire,
I received the placement order today but I have not recieved the care order for the four children yet. I am a bit annoyed with the solicitor she has not yet able to obtain the statement written by the children to the judge. To request the judge hearing I have to direct request through the court I might have to pay a fee. Which is I think it's unfair. I will appeal the placement order via CAB

I have not heard anything from the complaint I made on Tuesday. And the social worker has not made attempt to contact me or the friend. I will go CAB if I could appeal the placement order. I am not building my hopes up. The care orders may be sent to me later. Because I am contesting because of the criminal matter.

Hi Claire, I don't understand why it won't be an option for myself to appeal atleast the placement order. It may worth a try the advocate from justice for families might see if there is any ground of appeal if not then I will have to wait and hope they won't find suitable adopters.

If all 5 year and 3 years old children better in placements then all children would have had adopted parents. The placement order does not say time limited search that is really me though.

Hi Claire, there is nothing I can do now is to wait of the outcome of the criminal matter. Start a good relationship with my three children become a good positive mother to them. Give them a great time in these visits and enjoy and show the LA I am loving and caring stable mother I can be. My two youngest boys and my two girls I miss so much I am desperate for them two boys not to be adopted. I would do what they ask of me for my children to return to me. My children are my world I know they will grow up and fly the nest but they are all unique and special to me. But the LA made it difficult for me to work with them. I know what my older son done is not acceptable but he requires help and guidance. He does really love his brothers and sisters. He is living on this own without them he must be thinking about me and them all the time.

Nice food the ceremony went really well. The bride and groom look so good together. Took photos. The weather was lovely as wel.

He referring to my Gps and Outpatient appointment will be offered. He does not understand I am very vulnerable and he advice go to the CAB to help support on how I can get the LA to communicate to me.

Maybe ask my solicitor to ring me maybe every two weeks if there is an update. She said there is nothing the solicitor to say if there is nothing new come up about the case. She understands its frustrating but it won't come any sooner. Once the outcome of the case engagement had happened then we can move on to the next which would the trial.

I have requested to the customer care team of the complaint department walsall council a mediation meeting between myself, my support worker, children services managers and the customer care team officer.

Hi Claire, if I am found not guilty for the wilful assault I can still be charged for failure to protect my son from harm. I have spoken to family lives they are saying I have failed to protect my son from the stabbing that is why they removed all th children. Also I did not stop from the stabbing to happen. So there is a chance that I will not be able to care for the children because of my son being wounded while he was in my sole care.

What do you think?
