BLUE BADGE, daughter
hi everyone, I could do with some advice. My daughter 5 suffers from mitochondrial disease which has presented itself in many ways and leaves her unable to walk at all. She uses a walking frame. I have recently seperated from my wife and have regular access. My wife has since we seperated attempted to make my life very hard by withholding my passport, money, jewellery etc I’ve risen above and replaced all of the above. But she refuses to give me my daughters blue badge when I have her. I have begged pleaded and clearly outlined just how important this is for our daughter. Still it never travels with her leaving me sometimes having to carry her across car parks untill it’s safe to put her in her frame. She’s five and heavy so it’s not ideal. Sometimes I have to use a push chair which she hates. I’ve tried to apply for a badge of my own but the council have said it belongs to my daughter and not my ex and she should do the decent thing and give me it when I have her. But she still refuses and ignores my pleas. Any advice people????
