how to proceed with my case ?

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — kidless dad @ 2:17 pm Wed 26th February 2020

this started off with a without notice application based on violence and drug use also citing child neglect and untidy living conditions (majorly played up for maximum effect) i held onto my daughter for a week over our informal arrangements due to being threatened to never see her again, police did an uplift after an incident where the mother tried to take my daughter by force, i am currently on supervised visits with my daughter 2 hours weekly (other excluded because not biological for added psychological abuse). i have proof of all lies told on initial affidavit including the said violence and drug use also child neglect wasn’t even worth mentioning because its total bs . The mother has failed her drug test and returned a massive reading for marijuana, OT have made a report and say they have no concerns about having my daughters in my care. i passed mine with no drugs, i have started a parenting program and completed pts course . We have a directions hearing in a week or 2 the mother hasnt complied with any conditions on the parenting order and i have done everything but i am not sure my lawyer is acting in my interests as she seems rather lack luster about the outcomes ahead . Can anyone shine a light on this dark situation. Please and Thank you

    Hello Kidless Dad,,, I hope you have had some help since your post, if not, or you need some advice before the Directions Hearing, look up Frank at Guardians of Our Children, they hold workshops to help prepare for court processes but also can offer advice more immediately.

    Hi, Ift appears you made a huge mistake by not returning your daughter previously.
    If her lawyer is good, they will use it to delay-delay-delay and try to create a new status quo.
    They will try to torpedo your every chance to be reunited with your daughter by saying your conduct put your child in harm’ way. And that she may even have been traumatized by the police intervention (which no one else caused but you – in the eyes of the law).
    IT seems also your lawyer might be trying to rebuild you personne into a compliant parent who is child focused and whom now, so far, has shined through every step and passed every required test.
    So the passed drugs test and the parenting classes are your ammunition …you are doing the ground work. Keep up with the good work and have faith, it does sound like your lawyer knows what he is doing…It seems he is building your castle for you and you are the labourer and home owner.
    You have not lost your head and have kept your cool…persevere and you will succeed. But watch your lawyer like a hawk and talk to him. He must tell you what his strategy is and why before you engage in any line of conduct towards the reunification betweenm you and your daughter before any action is taken.
