Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How old is your child and what explanation has been given for the refusal?
When was the Order made?
My apologies for the delay
How is the child's time actually shared between you?
You have two court options.
The most effective is to make an urgent applictaion tomorrow for
1. A Specific Issue Order regarding the hand over of the child and
2. a Prohibited Steps Order preventing her from removing the child from your care on the days you should have her.
You should ask for a Penal Notice to be attached.
The application is on a C2 since there are existing proceedings
Alternatively you can apply to enforce the existing Order using a C79 (again ask for an urgent Order)
My concern is getting Court time before the 23rd - on that basis the first option might work better
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
My apologies - I knew there was a third option but it would not come to mind!
You can use this form
To get an Order that the Police help you in collecting the child
No there is no point in involving the police - and it will almost be seen as an over reaction .
You have no reason to think that your child is not safe - and that would be the only reason for ever contacting the police in such situations
You are most welcome - I hope all goes well tomorrow
