He doesn't know if they have referred to the police. Should he contact them?
The young lady has a previous history of a failed relationship which was violent. I don't know how many restraining orders she has had in the past. She is vindictive and uses facebook accordingly. When arguments have occur she resorts to you will never see the baby again routine.
No the police have not asked him about any thing that has occurred between them but they won't know his address as he is in B&B
He does want to be able to see the baby again. Also he would like to recover his belongings. How does he ensure that he can?
Thanks very much for your advice. One last query - when the contact order gets considered as he has virtually no money will he receive legal aid to help with getting a solicitor?
