I have concerns about my daughter seeing her dad. He is a weed addict, is very verbally aggressive and has a history of domestic violence in a previous relationship. He smokes weed while my daughter is in his care or asks his mum to watch her while he stays out late smoking weed with his friends. He has lost his temper with his older children in front of my daughter. Can I stop my daughter from seeing him?

Hu Clare...thankyou for your assistance...my daughter is 6
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I feel that the way he is, is having an affect on her as she is being monitored by an educational psychologist at school, as the teachers had concerns about her behavior and the way she can be emotionally
Solicitor: Clare, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He sees her every other weekend and half the holidays, in a previous relationship her father had, his mother was not able to stop him from holding a knife to the mother of his older children's throat, I only recently found this information out, so on hearing that, no I don't feel that his mum can protect my daughter
Solicitor: Clare, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

Is there a court order governing contact?

an arrangement was made that he had her every other weekend and half the school holidays
Solicitor: Clare, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

Sorry - I need to know if that was an Order sealed by the Court - or just an agreement that you reached
