I'd like to pas on some good news, after fifteen moths of not seeing my grand daughter I have finally been allowed. I went to court to get to see her and its taken ten months to sort it out.
I asked the SW to go and see A---- and find out what she wanted, she is seven and half and we had a very close relt before things went wrong.
She did get seen by a SW who asked A--- her wishes and feelings. It made a big difference when I went back to see the judge. Even though no one else had requested it. Sense prevailed at last.
I was not able to afford a solicitor and represented myself, I used a sol to help me with the legal side and the letters and phone calls, still put me back over a thousand pounds, I managed to pay the bill monthly so I didn't get into too much debt.
We are as close as ever and she is such a delight to be around. I never gave up, and the grief of not seeing her was the worst I had ever been though.
It had put such a strain on my marriage that it has broke up.
Best wishes to you all, and I saw your beautiful grand daughter on the telly, Lets hope the law start soon to make changes for us all.
