Anyone got experience of being prevented from seeing their disabled child due to parental arguments?

Good evening everyone. I wonder whether anyone has experience of being prevented from contact with their disabled child by virtue of parental arguments? It’s been six months and it just doesn’t get any easier.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation it can't be easy for you 

    The child needs to come first regardless of any arguments the parents have 

    Have you tried any legal support or mediation

    Welcome to the community @BobDadMeg :) Thanks for joining, it's great to have you on board.

    I've moved your post into our children, parents, and families category so that you have hopefully connect with some other parents. 

    I'm sorry you hear that you're in this position. It's not something I've personally experienced, so I can't offer advice in that sense, but I agree with the above suggestions that it might be a good idea to look into ways of trying to resolve this issue more formally. What have you tried so far?

    Legal advice is a step forward however can be expensive if you cant get legal aid.  There is a voluntary organisation called Families need Fathers however it is not just for fathers but for mothers and grandparents aswell. They are not the same as another group who campaigns you might see in the media but are those who have and are going through simular issues as yourself. Relate and other simular organistions may also be able to offer support. Good luck.
