Domestic violence in resident parent's home
(07-31-2017, 05:28 PM)MrJohn Wrote: Hi Mark,

Thanks for taking the time to fill me in, I appreciate that you must have your hands full given that you currently have an ongoing case, best of luck with that.

I've submitted the c100 & c1a, I managed to get through to child law advice line last week and as you suggested, they advised to apply to vary the existing order, which I have on the grounds that my kids current place of residence with his mum isn't suitable due to domestic violence witnessed by him.

I was surprised by the social worker's change in attitude as on Friday she was very understanding but this morning I got short shrift and was told there would be no further action on their behalf. She sounded annoyed by me. I'm assuming they are biased after reading previous notes relating to my son (his Mum successfully used the system to get legal aid, council house and what seems to be immunity from any intervention, all based on lies)

I guess I just have to wait for the hearing date to come through now...

In the meantime, any dads who are currently experiencing domestic violence or abuse from their partners, who are afraid for whatever reason to take a step towards getting some support from the relevant authorities, don't hesitate for a second! Go to your GP immediately and tell them everything. Sadly it is a first move wins approach with this issue. Is there a dedicated page for fathers experiencing domestic abuse or violence?

Thanks again, sadly I'm probably going to be on this site a lot for the foreseeable.


Just one things to bear in mind with specking to your own GP, if during your chat they belive a Child is in danger, under the law they will have to do a referal to Social Services. The law does not require them to tell you they are doing this.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.
