Customer Question

Hello,
My ex was violent and abused me last Sunday.
He was pushing me, grabbed my throat while I was holding our son in my right hand.
He wanted to pull the baby out of my hands what caused my baby big pain. The baby was screaming and crying.
The police was involved.
My question is the follows: is he entitled to see our son in the future? Obviously, he dangered the baby's health. Thank you
Timea

I'm afraid it is very unlikely that you will be able to prevent contact. It would be assessed by the court and it might be supervised at first but it will be granted. The days when contact could be obstructed by making allegations of domestic abuse have gone I'm afraid. Calling the police no longer prevents father's access to their children. On the face of it anyway the allegation involved you rather than the baby. It would be considered but it is not likely to deter him. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
